Composers, performers and aficionados of contemporary music will be busy this week, as the Unruly Music fall festival takes over Vogel Hall of the Marcus Center. Performers include soprano Jamie Jordan on Thursday, violinist Sarah Plum on Friday and the Spektral Quartet on Saturday, Oct. 18-20. They’ll represent composers from the local (UWM faculty member Christopher Burns, Appleton composer Andrew Seager Cole) to the national and international (Thomas Adès, George Crumb, Mari Takano, and Kaija Saariaho).
Burns founded Unruly Music in the fall of 2006. It began at the UWM Peck School of the Arts Recital Hall, then moved to the Marcus Center in 2009. To date, 60 Unruly concerts have occurred. Past performers include Arditti Quartet violinist Graeme Jennings (at the very first Unruly Music concert), pianist Gloria Cheng, khaen performer Christopher Adler, and the ensembles NOISE, Formalist String Quartet, Thelema Trio from Belgium, sfSound, Yarn/Wire, and C2.
