The directors of The Southland Ensemble will lead three days of workshops guiding students through the music and ideas of John Cage.

John Cage was one of the most radical and influential composers of the 20th century. His work continues to influence artists of all genres unto the present day. Each day of this workshop will focus on one of three specific themes present in Cage’s music - What is Music?, Silence, and Chance.

Students will have the opportunity to interactively learn about these ideas through watching and discussing original footage of Cage, performing his compositions using traditional and non-traditional instruments, as well as the opportunity to compose music themselves. Students must possess curiosity and a love of music, but need not be well versed in an instrument to participate.

The workshop will culminate with a final concert on Sunday, September 8th, featuring works by John Cage as well as student compositions.

In order to participate in this concert, students must attend all three workshops. However, this event is free and open to the public to attend.
