Grisey in Vermont

I've been getting press releases from Yellow Barn, a "center for chamber music performance and study" in Putney, Vermont. The latest describes a program consisting only of Gérard Grisey's Le noir de l'etoile, for six percussionists placed around the audience. I'd go if I could; if you're in the northeast, maybe you can:
