SOUNDS OF OUR TIME
Created in 2016 by Lake George Music Festival (LGMF) Music Director Roger Kalia, Sounds of Our Time is an innovative concert series that will explore connections that cross musical genres.
The Sounds of Our Time concert series seeks to demonstrate the connections between popular music of our time and classical music, both contemporary and from the past. Each concert will highlight the similarities and common links between two different genres by opening with a classical performance by members of the LGMF Symphony Orchestra, followed by a solo set of our featured artist, and culminating with a unique collaboration between the two groups. Throughout the concert, you will soon discover that modern popular music is fundamentally similar to classical music.
The 2017 installment of Sounds of Our Time will feature the Brooklyn-based experimental indie electronic band Balún. The concert will explore the connections of rhythm by having the Lake George Festival Symphony Orchestra open the concert with a performance of Paul Dooley’s groundbreaking Percussion Concerto, a co-comissioned work featuring solo percussionist Lisa Pegher. This will be followed by a collaboration with Balun and the Lake George Festival Symphony Orchestra performing original works.
