As an advocate of contemporary musicians and composers, Greenwich House Music School presents its new concert series, unCAGEd, beginning in the Fall of 2012. Curator and Former GH Music School Director Menon Dwarka has based this concert series upon the life and work of John Cage. Read more about Dwarka's meeting with Cage, and his inspiration for the series.
Celebrating his centenary in 2012, the performances in the series contextualize Cage's work as a founder of the New York School of composers, a student of early modernism and a precursor to many subsequent artistic movements, such as conceptual art, minimalism and audio sampling/collage.Cage's connection to Greenwich House Music School is attributed to his relationship with Henry Cowell and his percussion orchestra, which rehearsed in the Music School's second floor concert hall. Greenwich House served as a community hub for Cage and his peers, along with hundreds of other musicians during this historic time period of artistic exploration. We are proud to recognize him as we celebrate the next generation of influential contemporary musicians in New York through the presentation of these concerts.
