The Tufts University Department of Music presents Michael Gordon’s “Rushes”: A Work for Seven Bassoons, as performed by The Rushes Ensemble in the Distler Performance Hall at the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. This iconic work brings out tonal and timbral aspects of the bassoon that are meant to induce a quasi-meditative, almost ecstatic state in the listeners as well as the performers. Michael Gordon is one of the founders of Bang On A Can.
The Granoff Music Center is located at 20 Talbot Avenue on Tufts’ Medford/Somerville campus. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit as.tufts.edu/music/musiccenter or call the Granoff Music Center Box Office at 617.627.3679.
