Mark Konewko, carillonneur and director of the Marquette University Chorus, will perform Music for Carillon No. 5 by John Cage, Friday, July 11, at 7 p.m. from the Paccard Carillon in the bell tower of Marquette Hall as part of a documentary. The best listening area will be the south or southwest side of Marquette Hall.
The piece Konewko is performing is unique because it is a graphic score, meaning the score is made up of black lines on plywood, using the grain of the plywood to suggest which bells are played.
For more information, contact Konewko at (414) 288-3789.
