UCSD PERFORMERS EARN MAJOR PROPS FOR STEVE REICH CONCERT
Ecstatic reviews are rolling in for the January 18 concert at UCSD of music by famed composer Steve Reich, who made a rare San Diego appearance to lecture and perform.
San Diego Union-Tribune music critic Jim Chute names UCSD musicians Ariana Lamon-Anderson and Allison Roush among key players who propelled the music, while San Diego Reader writer Robert Bush called the concert "triumphant". And San Diego.com writer Kenneth Herman awarded the concert 5 out of 5 stars (same as a top restaurant in a Zagat guide). Herman described the Reich concert as "exhilirating" and "a musical feast of Reich."
The concert was directed by UCSD percussionist, conductor, and faculty member Steven Schick and featured several top musicians from the Department of Music. The concert was presented by UCSD ArtPower! in partnership with the music department.
