Alarm Will Sound made their fourth annual visit to Columbia last week and went where most orchestras fear to tread: they performed music by living, breathing composers.  The two shows by the 20-member ensemble offered a surprising look into the present and future of classical composition.

Does what we put in our heads impact our outlook on life? The media you consume influences how you feel, but how exactly do one’s choices influence mood?

When the jazz pianist Don Shirley died on April 6, his passing was not widely reported.

A New York Times obituary noted that the Jamaican born virtuoso pianist was trained in the classical repertoire. Later, the impresario Sol Hurok advised Shirley “to pursue a career in popular music and jazz.” Hurok warned Shirley that “American audiences were not willing to accept a ‘colored’ pianist on the concert stage.”
