The Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Instrumental Department is proud to present Terry Riley’s seminal 1964 piece “In C” on January 23, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in Ferrini Dramatics Center at the High School. “In C” is a landmark of minimalist music. There are 53 melodic fragments that each musician repeats until they decide to move onto the next one. Musicians are to all stay within 5 fragments of each other. The resulting sound creates a musical experience both beautiful and unlike anything the audience may have heard before. All the fragments work together much like only using the white keys on a piano, hence “In C”.
