Free show at Oberlin Saturday

If you live in northern Ohio, you don't have to go to the trouble and expense of traveling to New York City to participate in the hoopla over the 70th birthday of famed modern composer Steve Reich. Instead, you can attend a free show by the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at Warner Concert Hall on the Oberlin campus. The program includes Reich's "Different Trains." They'll also do two pieces by visiting composer Philip Manoury, so you can join the Manoury hoopla, too. (Confusingly, Philip Manoury and Philippe Manoury are apparently the same person.) The concert also has pieces by Elliott Carter, Maderna and Harvey, so it sounds like an interesting program. Wish I could go, but I have other plans that are too late to cancel.
