The second in a three-concert series exploring the Darmstadt school and its musical legacy, "The New Yorkers" focuses on works by John Cage, an American contemporary to the Darmstadt composers and the most famous member of the "New York School." Cage was a leader in the American avant-garde movement of the 1950s and 1960s. His experimental work challenged nearly every convention in art and performance, and his radical ideas inspired many younger composers and artists. The concert features five selections from Cage's ambitious Ten Thousand Things, an indeterminate project comprising a series of pieces that can be performed in any order, concurrently or alone. Joining Curtis 20/21 to perform as speaker is guest artist Laura Kuhn, director of the John Cage Trust and editor of the recently published Selected Letters of John Cage.

This free event begins at 7:30 p.m. with a pre-concert conversation between Laura Kuhn and Curtis 20/21 Artistic Director David Ludwig. The performance portion of the program will begin at 8 p.m. The full program will be streamed live at www.curtis.edu/CurtisPerforms and broadcast through Facebook Live.
