Eastman alumni and pianists Futaba Niekawa and Olga Shupyatskaya on Sunday will bring back "Sonic Cluster" in a new program that focuses on the collaboration between Eastman musicians, local freelancers, and dancers. The concert highlights music written for two pianos, including the premiere of a work by fellow Eastman alum Jennifer Bellor. Compositions by the likes of Bach, Chopin, and Piazzolla round out a stylistically diverse and engaging program. The multidisciplinary "Sonic Cluster II" is a great way to celebrate artists with Rochester ties in a set of music that spans multiple genres.
"Sonic Cluster II" will be performed on Sunday, July 2, at Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 7:30 p.m. $10 general admission; free with UR ID. 274-3000; esm.rochester.edu.
