Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the concert last night.  If you were there, leave a note and tell me how it went.

  1. Jerry, you can read about it in the NYT … http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/28/arts/music/american-contemporary-music-ensemble-at-joes-pub-review.html

    I enjoyed 2 pieces, which is saying a lot … but the performances by the SQ etc. were great!

    The worse the music is the more difficult it is to perform … ACME made some really bad music sound OK.

  2. Yes, it was a great program (I’m writing a short piece about it as well), and it would have been great to meet you, Jerry! I met Christian and many others for the first time in the flesh, and it was great to see the composers given a hand after their pieces were performed! I hope there’ll be more shows like that one!

  3. It was fantastic, Jerry! Wonderful performances by ACME, great pieces, friendly atmosphere… The complete review on I Care if You Listen will follow soon!

    Although we certainly understood , we all missed seeing you there Jerry. We raised a glass in your honor before the concert. The MNMP folks – Nancy and Max – couldn’t have been more graceful and helpful hosts.

    I’ll let others speak to the show, other than to say that, in my estimation, ACME played beautifully. Again, a great partnership.
