Faculty Recital: Tiffany Ng, carillon

Monday, January 15, 2018

12:00pm, Burton Memorial Tower


Music Against Silence: Concert for U-M Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium

On the 53-bell Charles Baird Carillon, Tiffany Ng will perform music from the Civil Rights Movement and Black jazz composers, and give the Ann Arbor premiere of Kalvert Nelson’s “Carillon Dances” (1973). Nelson is a Black composer, trumpeter, and music educator who has been commissioned by distinguished ensembles such as the Kronos Quartet, Oklahoma Symphony, Brooklyn Philharmonic, and many dance companies. His influences span jazz, folk, hip-hop, theater, and film, and his works often promote social justice and Black culture.

The public is welcome inside the belfry during the concert and afterwards for Q&A with the performers and student music arrangers. Please take the elevator to the 8th floor and walk two flights of stairs to the 10th floor. An ADA-accessible listening space with live video simulcast will be available on the 8th floor, followed by a student-led demonstration of the adjoining practice carillon.
