Sonatas and Interludes: Stephen Rush Performs John Cage's Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano

This is a past event.

This is a past event.

If you have never heard of "prepared piano," prepare to be amazed. John Cage wrote instructions in the music to put common items, like screws and erasers, into the piano to change how it sounds! We'll put a camera in the piano and project it so that you can see what's happening inside the piano throughout the concert. 

John Cage's groundbreaking work Sonatas and Interludes for solo piano is a one-of-a-kind experience that will fascinate you. Join us for Stephen Rush's performance of this unique and meditative sonic experience.

Check out the video below by the New England Conservatory of Music to learn more about prepared piano.


Libby Meyer, Senior Lecturer for the Michigan Tech Visual and Performing Arts Department and Director of the Music Composition Program, curates this performance. 

Masks are required. Please visit the Rozsa COVID-19 Policies for more information.
