'General Electric' to be turned on in Washington

Composer D.J. Sparr's "General Electric" will premiere at 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 17, at The Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives, 1201 17th Street NW in Washington, D.C. The performance will be by The Great Noise Ensemble, a top Washington new music group. It should be interesting; my informant, Darren Zieger, explains that Sparr "has a doctorate in music and two BMI awards to his credit, has a great deal of formal training, but also appreciates 80's guitar riffs." Hey, who doesn't? If you have money, or a sense of humor, or both, be sure to check out Sparr's application for a personal benefactor.
