LOCATION: Figge Art Museum
Tony Oliver, percussion professor at Augustana College and long-time member of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra, will perform SPACES, an 80-minute composition for solo vibraphone, a ringing keyboard percussion instrument capable of conjuring a dreamy, contemplative atmosphere of gentle harmony and intriguing timbre. Audience members will have opportunity to sit and listen, to wander the museum as the sound flows through the galleries, or to do a little of each. This will be the world premiere of the work, composed by James Romig, professor of music composition at Western Illinois University, Romig's STILL, for solo piano, was performed at The Figge in 2018 and was recognized as a finalist for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize.
Come early to enjoy a cash bar starting at 5 p.m.
