Livewire 11: Yarn/Wire


Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall

Date & Time

October 23, 2021, 7:30 pm9:00 pm


The Livewire 11: Rewired new music festival, presented by the Department of Music, concludes on Saturday night with a performance by the dynamic piano-percussion quartet Yarn/Wire in a mind-bending program of works by Klaus Lang and Misato Mochizuki. In Lang’s gorgeous work, time seems to stand still; while in Mochizuki’s explosive work, the theatricality of chamber music once more bursts to the fore.

Yarn/Wire is a new music quartet dedicated to the promotion of creative, experimental new music in the U.S. and abroad. Yarn/Wire achieves this by supporting composers and audiences through live performances, educational activities, and large-scale collaborative projects. The ensemble is devoted to expanding the representation of composers including but not limited to those who identify as women, LGBTQIA+, Black, African, Indigenous, Latina(o)(x), Asian, or Arab so that it might better reflect our communities and amplify their full creative potential.

$15 general admission, $10 for senior citizens, and $5 for students. (This event is free for UMBC Department of Music students, faculty and staff.)
