7:30 PM: Alarm Will Sound
Missouri Theatre
(Address: 203 South 9th Street, Columbia, MO 65201)
 
ALARM WILL SOUND IS
 “…merging styles, erasing boundaries, championing experimentation and obviously having fun along the way.” – Denver Post  

This concert is the culmination of a week of intense collaborative workshops through which Alarm Will Sound continues to bring the work of today's most imaginative composers to Columbia. A festival built around the close cooperation of musicians and composers—in some cases, the composers are the musicians—leads to performances that have an unusual degree of artistic insight. The program ranges across many current musical styles, including the music of Zhou Long, Beat Furrer, Nico Muhly, and John Adams. Zhou Long and Nico Muhly, both renowned worldwide for their artistic achievements, are Guest Composers at the Festival, and this opening concert highlights how the Festival has become an important event on an international scale.
