Kahilu Theatre presents ‘Sunday Afternoon with Sarah Cahill’

May 19, 2017 - 12:05am

Kahilu Theatre and Ebb &Flow Arts present pianist Sarah Cahill on Sunday in the Kahilu Theatre’s Mike Luce Studio.

Cahill, recently called “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde” by The New York Times, has commissioned, premiered, and recorded numerous compositions for solo piano. Composers who have dedicated works to her include John Adams, Terry Riley, Frederic Rzewski, Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono and Evan Ziporyn. She has also premiered pieces by Lou Harrison, Julia Wolfe, Ingram Marshall, Toshi Ichiyanagi, George Lewis, Leo Ornstein and others.

Her Kahilu Theatre concert features a bold spectrum of 20th-century music including the maverick Lou Harrison, Afro-Cuban composer Tania Leon, the visionary Ruth Crawford, and Leo Ornstein, who Sarah met when he was 107 years old.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m. Sunday Afternoon with Sarah Cahill is a free event, but due to limited capacity reservations must be made online at www.kahilutheatre.org, by calling 885-6868, or at the Kahilu Theatre Box Office from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekdays.
