Alarm Will Sound, a 20-member ensemble, brings its intelligence and sense of adventure to a program of collaborations and rich musical expression.
“As close to being a rock band as a chamber orchestra can be” (The New York Times), Alarm Will Sound is a 20-member touring ensemble led by Artistic Director Alan Pierson that commissions, performs, and records innovative works by established and emerging composers, especially works that incorporate theatrical and multimedia elements by choreographers, visual artists, designers, and directors. Its wide-ranging artistic vision looks beyond genre-electronic vs. acoustic, high-modernist vs. pop-influenced, conventional classical concert vs. multimedia experience.
This concert is part of the 2015 SONiC – Sounds of a New Century festival: 9 days of 21st century music by composers age 40 and under produced by American Composers Orchestra. Alarm Will Sound’s performance is made possible with the generous support of the Sinquefield Charitable Foundation.
