Reich – Music for 18 Musicians
Emerald City Music is Olympia’s home for top-flight chamber music performances. Now in its third season, the series brings over 45 classical soloists and chamber musicians to Olympia from every corner of the globe.
American composer Steve Reich is hailed for his work as a pioneer of the minimalist music movement. This monumental performance – a single concert-length work – features Reich’s rarely staged Music for Eighteen Musicians. For this momentous occasion, a cast of vocalists, percussionists, pianists, and chamber musicians gather from around the globe in the Pacific Northwest. The work is only performed in the United States every few years; do not miss this rare opportunity to hear one of the crowning compositional achievements of the 21st Century!
