Alarm Will Sound
They're calling it a "Rochester homecoming" on the Alarm Will Sound website. For founding members of the ensemble, Alan Pierson and Gavin Chuck, the Feb. 19 concert is precisely this. Pierson and Chuck graduated from the Eastman School in 2006, and the years in between have been a rapid climb to the inner circle of coveted spots on the "New Music" scene within the classical-music world.
Next week, Alarm Will Sound brings its original performance piece "1969" to the stage of Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre.
