Last year, the International Orange Chorale, a much-decorated Bay Area chorus that sings a lot of interesting and often difficult 20th & 21st century music, put on an extremely rare performance of Milton Babbitt's Music for the Mass. Written 74 years ago, it's hardly been performed since. IOC was in contact with Babbitt's family toward the end of the composer's life, and so he knew that it would be performed. I am enormously touched by this.
This year, IOC is raising funds to record Music for the Mass. This is such a great use of Kickstarter, and as a Babbitt fan, I'm so happy I'll get to hear it.
If you can throw in a couple of bucks toward this worthy project, please do; if you're a fellow complexity lover, please spread the word!
