According to Mayan reckoning and eschatology, Friday, December 21st, 2012 will be the end of the world. Many of us hope that Mayan prognosticating proves overly pessimistic. But American Modern Ensemble and Talujon aren’t taking any chances. At 8 PM EST, they’re ringing in doomsday with a concert of clarion percussion works and other modern chamber music at the DiMenna Center in New York.
