Bozeman Symphony Presents: Current Commotion
GRAMMY®-nominated ‘Seven Pillars’ Comes to Bozeman
The Bozeman Symphony pushes the limits with its experimental series, Current Commotion, that champions new music by living composers. Join the Bozeman Symphony for its inaugural performance at The ELM for critically acclaimed composer Andy Akiho’s “Seven Pillars,” a bold, genre-defying piece featuring Sandbox Percussion.
Hailed by The New York Times as “a lush, brooding celebration of noise,” Andy Akiho’s GRAMMY-nominated Seven Pillars is his most ambitious project to date. The work is structured as a large-scale palindrome and consists of seven ensemble movements and one solo movement for each member of Sandbox Percussion. Michael McQuilken's lighting scheme reinforces the work's form throughout the theatrical live-performance. Performed by Sandbox Percussion, this evening-length work is the largest-scale chamber music work that Akiho has written and that Sandbox has commissioned. Akiho and Sandbox's ongoing collaboration for "Seven Pillars" has spanned the past 8 years.
The performance will be held in person on Saturday, November 19 at 7:30 PM at The Elm (506 N 7th Ave, Bozeman, MT 59715) near downtown Bozeman. This performance would not be possible without strong community support and sponsorship. Bozeman Symphony wishes to thank Rob and Lynn Maher and Renée and Stuart Westlake for sponsoring this performance, as well as our Season Sponsors, Stephen Schachman and Ritva Porter.
