Senior Recital – Ben Zucker: Poetics in Motion

BenZucker-304x304Join the CFA for a senior music recital by Ben Zucker ’15, “Poetics in Motion.”

I always have trouble explaining my thesis, but it contains this important quote:

“What writing music comes down to, in the end, is care. We create situations. We care about them and take care of them. And we care for the people involved.” (Michael Pisaro)

I care about you. I care about my music. Therefore, I care very deeply about situations where you and my music can coexist. So as part of the culmination of my Wesleyan education, I am beyond thrilled to present to you the premier of original compositions and then some (“then some” may include solo improvisations and John Cage).

Featuring the amazing playing of:

Siri Carr, Josh Davidoff, Vivian Deng, Ali Felman, Tobias Frohnhöfer, Dina Maccabee, Angus Macdonald, and Ron Shalom

Date: Thursday, March 5
