An exciting event featuring Ian Coss ’11:
This concert was designed to take advantage of the instruments and acoustics found in Wesleyan’s Memorial Chapel. Before I lose access to these wonderful resources, I am putting on a show of mostly original music arranged for pipe organ and a small ensemble. It features Bill Carbone ’10 on drums, Andrew Fogliano ’09 on piano and synthesizers, and Nathan Shane ’13 on organ. The space is lovely; the songs will be lush and mellow. The program will last one hour.
The music will be drawn mostly from the two albums I have released this year, both available at iancoss.com
Date: April 23
Time: 9:00 – 10:00 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel
