Come celebrate Philip Glass’ 75th birthday at the 2012 River To River Festival at the Philip Glass Ensemble's only concert that is free to the public this year. Join the Philip Glass Ensemble as they perform a retrospective program of the legendary composer’s music in the beautiful setting of Rockefeller Park. As a special component to the evening, youth ensemble Face the Music opens the event with Philip Glass’ Glassworks. The talented teens of Face the Music (the oldest of whom was born in 1994) digs in to the lush harmonies and rich textures of this modern-day classic with great enthusiasm. This event promises to be a memorable and unforgettable musical spectacular.
Face the Music's performance wil be 40 minutes long and that Philip Glass Ensemble follows.
