MUSICAL MOMENT: Actors Jon Patrick Walker as John Lennon (left), David Chandler as Luciano Berio, and Robert Stanton as Karlheinz Stockhausen rehearse 1969, a multimedia work by Eastman-born new music ensemble Alarm Will Sound. The ensemble, which includes more than a dozen Eastman graduates, presented a special performance of the work at Kodak Hall in February. Developed by conductor Alan Pierson ’06E (DMA), Nigel Maister, director of the International Theatre Program, and writer Andrew Kupfer, 1969 includes arrangements by Gavin Chuck ’04E (PhD), Stefan Freund ’02E (DMA), Payton MacDonald ’01E (DMA), and Matt Marks ’02E.
