First Mondays in Block 6 will present the Bowed Piano Ensemble, Colorado College’s internationally renowned experimental music group, directed by CC Music Professor Stephen Scott. The troupe of CC students, faculty and staff perform using fish line, horsehair, rubber and plastic tape, guitar picks and more on the interior components of a grand piano to create haunting, beautiful music that is as fascinating to watch as it is to hear. The Ensemble will preview three of Professor Scott's compositions Rainbows (1981), Azul/En su Isla (2002) with soprano Victoria Hansen, and Aurora Ficta, from the Ensemble's Spring Tour to Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, SC and Bermuda. Due to the physical nature of the performance and to achieve optimum acoustics, the First Monday event will take place in the Celeste Theater (South Theater) in the Cornerstone Arts building. Therefore seating will be limited for this performance, and the overflow seating with live-feed projection of the event will be in the Cornerstone Main Space. The all-campus reception will be in the Cornerstone Main Space, afterwards: please join the gathering!
