Joelle Wallach’s Glancing Below for violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, 2 percussion and saxophone, conducted by Marian Stewart, will be presented on Saturday, April 10 – 5 PM at the Rehearsal Hall of Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of Music, 81 George Street in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

This will be Ms. Stewart’s DMA full conducting recital, in which she will also lead works by Libby Larsen, Jennifer Higdon, Anne McGinty, and Ruth Gipps. About 30 students from Mason Gross will comprise the ensemble.
A one-movement chamber work, Glancing Below was originally commissioned by the Carlisle Project as a ballet score, and premiered as a ballet entitled Flaws in the Glass, in Philadelphia’s Drake Theater in August, 1994. The Hartford Ballet gave the work its New York City premiere in June, 1995, and it was also a 1999 Juilliard Dance Theater showcase production.
