Friday, Jul 12, 2019, 5:30pm

Union Hall, Rockport

Jeffery Zeigler

Jeffrey Zeigler, cello

A concert presenting new music by celebrated composers. Written for amplified cello and electronics, all pieces are performed by world-renowned cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, long time member of Kronos Quartet, cellist for John Zorn, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and many more. The endeavor was co-curated by Zeigler and composer-bandleader Graham Reynolds. Paired with scientists of their own choosing, all the composers created music inspired by and reflective of the scientist’s life and practice. (More information about the composer - scientist pairings here) Golden Hornet’s The Sound of Science builds bridges between the musical and scientific worlds, celebrating their shared culture of inquiry.
