Members of Manhattan School of Music’s elite contemporary music ensemble Tactus present an evening of world premiere solo works written by Manhattan School’s student composers. This performance is the culmination of a annual concert series known as Power Concerts, a compact and stimulating weekly musical event consisting of new and experimental works held every Tuesday evening at Manhattan School of Music. The final event of the series, the MegaPower Concert, will be held at The Firehouse Space on April 10th, 2015 at 5pm.
The solo pieces to be performed have been conceived and brought to life for this concert event through intimate collaborations between composer and performer. Not only will this event be a vivacious afternoon of world premiers but will showcase the the talents coming out of Manhattan School of Music’s composition and contemporary performance programs.
