UFO http://wrti.org en Labor Day Weekend on Now Is the Time http://wrti.org/post/labor-day-weekend-now-time <p>Maybe this weekend you're traveling with <strong>Now Is the Time, Sunday, September 1st at 10 pm</strong>. We start with <em>City Columns</em> for orchestra by Shawn Crouch, and then go way, way out with Michael Daugherty's percussion concerto <em>UFO</em>. Evelyn Glennie solos, sometimes on unidentified pieces of metal, in the work that's all about Roswell and Area 51 and improvising in front of a large wind ensemble.<br><br>It's also the time of year for going back to school, and Matthew McCabe remembers his first music teacher in&nbsp;<em>Everything Must Be Beautiful</em>. The homage uses her voice, together with electronically processed sounds, in glorious, retro, two-channel tape. Whether you're here or far, far away (<a href="http://wrti.org">we stream online!</a>), and whether you study, teach, work, or rest, have a great weekend!</p><p> Sun, 01 Sep 2013 01:43:24 +0000 Kile Smith 6397 at http://wrti.org Labor Day Weekend on Now Is the Time
