Yerba Buena Center for the Arts | 701 Mission Street San Francisco, CA 94103
American composer John Cage was one of the most influential and controversial musical voices of the 20th century. The John Cage Centennial Celebration culminates at YBCA with a new production of Cage’s exuberant musical carnival Musicircus on Sunday, October 28, 2012 starting at 1pm.
In this free marathon concert, the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and friends will perform Cage’s music and writings simultaneously throughout YBCA’s Forum and galleries. Audiences are invited to come and go throughout the afternoon and to experience the full range of Cage’s genius, from exuberant periods of raucous energy to moments of silence and contemplation.
The day also features a variety of food carts, student performances, and a self-guided sound walk, and is appropriate for all ages and all levels of musical knowledge or experience.
