Sound Site: The Performance

Chao Nung's Introduction to the Performance
 
WHAT WOULD YOU CALL THIS PIECE? In March of 1999, the Minnesota Orchestra will perform a new work by composer Libby Larsen and writer John Coy that explores the nature of sounds in the environment. Third and fourth-graders, like Chao Nung, at four Minnesota schools, helped John and Libby "collect" sounds about beauty, quiet and din. Some of these sounds will be used in the orchestral piece (you can send one of these sounds to a friend as a SoundCard).
