Festival highlights:

Three world premiere performances, one per festival concert, of the 2012 Look & Listen commission, Orbit Design, by composer Derek Bermel. The work is a tribute to 20th century radical John Cage. The score combines notation, improvisation, and chance elements that will come alive uniquely when realized by a trio of percussions on May 12th, a trio of flutists on May 13th, and Brooklyn Rider on May 14th.
Look & Listen regular since 2012 So Percussion will curate the opening concert.

Master’s degree candidates from Pratt Institute’s Department of Fine Arts will be exhibiting work in all media at Pratt Manhattan Gallery as part of Pratt Institute’s “Graduate Fine Arts 2012” exhibition during the Festival. Arrive early, ½ hour before concert begins, to enjoy the artworks and talk with visual artists represented in the show. The exhibition is on view from May 12–26, 2012.
WQXR’s Q2 Music is the Festival’s digital partner. Stream all three concerts on-demand at q2music.org.
