Making Noise presents Colin McAllister: The Library at Night

Please join us for a recital by classical guitarist Colin McAllister to kick off Making Noise, a performance series in the Music Library. A reception will be held at 6:30 followed by the performance at 7:30. This event is underwritten by the UVA Arts Council.

Drawing inspiration from Alberto Manguel’s book of the same name (a series of essays on the idea of the library), The Library at Night takes the listener on a literary, musical and historical journey through time and place. For several of Manguel’s essays (e.g. The Library as Imagination, The Library as Space, The Library as Oblivion) Colin interweaves music alongside poetry, historical vignettes and visual imagery in an engaging concert-length presentation. The compelling selection of music includes masters of medieval, Renaissance and Baroque polyphony, the first “Golden Age” of the guitar, sensual rhythms from Latin America and a newly commissioned work, Spines, by award-winning composer Christopher Adler.
