February 21 – March 14, 2020
As the presenter that introduced Philip Glass to Philadelphia, we celebrate the career and impact of one of the nation’s most significant modern composers through #GLASSFEST. This three-week festival includes the Philadelphia premiere of Glass’ groundbreaking Music in Twelve Parts in its five-hour entirety, and the world premiere of theatrical work The White Lama by Nikki Appino, which features a score performed by Glass himself. In addition, this preeminent composer will be on Penn’s campus for a workshop with students, providing a once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunity.
