Forecast Music, the Piedmont Triad’s premier contemporary music group, proudly presents works by a variety of local and national contemporary composers, as well as a recently unearthed John Cage classic. The program will feature works by Marc Satterwhite (KY), Amelia Kaplan (IN), Mark Engebretson (NC), Eric Schwartz (NC), 2015 Forecast Music International Call for Scores winner Thomas Kotcheff (CA), who will be in attendance to introduce his work, as well as “Dance Music for Elfrid Ide”, a long lost John Cage score only rediscovered in 2005. Performers, drawn from the faculties of UNCSA, Wake Forest University, and UNCG, include Carla Copeland-Burns-flute, Michael Burns-bassoon, Jacqui Carrasco-violin, Evan Richey-cello, John Beck-percussion, James Douglass-piano, and new Forecast Music saxophonist Susan Fancher. The Cage work, written for the dance faculty at Mills College, where he worked in the early 40s, will serve as a segue into a free after-event: a performance of choreographer Trisha Brown’s Sololos. This work is being restaged by former principal dancer of Brown’s company and current UNCSA School of Dance faculty member Abigail Yager, and will be performed by UNCSA student dancers. It will begin shortly after the Forecast Performance concludes.forecast east west_sm
