The Northwestern Symphony Orchestra and Contemporary Music Ensemble’s Zappa and Varèse concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 26, at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall.

Additional InformationComposer Edgard Varèse’s emphasis on timbre, rhythm and emerging technologies inspired a multitude of musicians who came of age during the 1960s and ‘70s, among them guitarist and composer Frank Zappa. This program, conducted by Alan Pierson, Ben Bolter and Taichi Fukumura, includes Zappa’s “Dog Breath Variations/Uncle Meat,” “Pedro’s Dowry” and “G-Spot Tornado” as well as Edgard Varèse’s “Intégrales,” “Ionisation” (featuring the Northwestern University Percussion Ensemble) and “Amériques.” Between ensemble changes, the performance features Zappa as “virtual emcee” through audio recordings in which he discusses his Varèse experiences.
