Roger Reynolds, who will be one of the guest composers for the 2011 Mizzou New Music Summer Festival, recently returned to Ann Arbor, MI to celebrate the legacy of the ONCE Festival and the associated group of new music composers he helped to found during the 1960s.
The event ONCE. MORE. was an interdisciplinary celebration that featured performances of more than three hours of music from founding composers Reynolds, Robert Ashley, Gordon Mumma, Donald Scavarda and the late George Cacioppo. You can read a review of the event from the local paper here, and there’s more coverage from Sequenza 21 here.
