Audience participation and artistic design are on display for the Chamber Orchestra’s dynamic 3rd series. Nearly 225 years later, Würfelspiel, Mozart’s famous Dice Game algorithm will allow audiences to “design” the structure of the new works arranged by COP’s artist-in-residence Adam Vidiksis. With the aleatoric scores displayed throughout the Perelman Theater, the audience will have an intimate understanding of the works as they’re being performed. Mimi Stillman, Curtis trained flutist, shows off her improvisation skills in Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 1in G Major. A concert you definitely do not want to miss.
