Columbia University Orchestra Gala Performance at Alice Tully Hall

Congratulations to the Columbia University Orchestra on its magnificent performance at Alice Tully Hall!
This gala performance on April 18, 2015 received standing ovations from an audience of 800. The program, conducted by Music Director Jeffrey Milarsky, featured Ernest Chausson's Poeme, Op. 25 (with Joseph Morag, violin solo) and Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1 in D Major. The 2015 and 2016 Performances in Alice Tully Hall were made possible by a generous gift from Jo and Ken Merlau, parents of an orchestra member in the Columbia College Class of 2016.
Founded in 1896, the Columbia University Orchestra is the oldest continually operating university orchestra in the United States.

New Website Documents David Adamcyk & Zosha Di Castri's "Phonobellow" for ICE


Zosha Di Castri (Assistant Professor, Music) and David Adamcyk (visiting postdoctoral scholar at the Computer Music Center) have created a website to document their new work "Phonobellow" commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE).

As the website describes the work: "Phonobellow, a huge bellows, spreads across the stage like an accordion or an old-fashioned camera. Through images, electronics, sculpture, lighting, and live music performed by ICE, Phonobellow captures how deeply two very different technologies--the high-speed camera and the phonograph--resonated with people in 1877, and and how they continue to reverberate to this day."
