Fulton Recital Hall, 4th floor of Goodspeed Hall, 5845 S. Ellis Ave.
Presented by Greg Sandow, a veteran critic, composer, and consultant whose specialty is now the future of classical music; a member of the Graduate Studies faculty at Juilliard; and artist-in-residence at the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Maryland, where he’s working with students at the School of Music to help them find an audience of their own age.
Classical music is at a scary but exciting crossroads. Scary, because many things need to change if classical music is going to survive. But exciting, because the changes are already happening, and they open up stunning new possibilities. Classical music can be reborn. It can rejoin the culture around it and become a truly contemporary art.
