Schwartz Center for Performing Arts
Atlanta, Georgia
Friday, 20 October 2017 - 8:00 PM
The Emory University Wind Ensemble and conductor Paul Bhasin will perform composer Geoffrey Gordon's new work, ROCKS, as part of a concert at the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, in Atlanta.

ROCKS is a work in five movements for symphonic winds, brass, piano, harp, percussion and double bass, inspired by the textures and sonic implications of five rocks: glassy, volcanic obsidian; dry, crisp slate; luxurious blue lapis; magical amethyst; and intense, burning sulfur.

ROCKS was commissioned by a consortium of 21 universities in the United States and Cambridge University in the United Kingdom.
