Lawrence students and faculty give a rare performance of Steve Reich’s seminal work Music for Eighteen Musicians to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Since its premiere on April 24, 1976, this hour-long work has enchanted and mesmerized listeners. Its use of subtly shifting sonorities against a background pulse came to define Steve Reich’s sound in the 1970s, and influenced a generation of composers. Come and experience this work live in the beautiful Lawrence Chapel!
