The Kaleidosonic Music Festival is a free event. It will start at 7:30 pm in Finney Chapel and run continuously for approximately 4 hours.
The festival will be an exciting evening-length event with musicians representing a wide array of styles: Gospel, classical, rock and roll, jazz, early music, marching band, serious, funny, and avant-garde!
Nearly 500 musicians will perform in a single extended musical collage: Imagine a brass fanfare alongside taiko drumming, and then organ alongside bagpipes, and 20 speakers surrounding the audience for a fully immersive sonic experience!
We have also launched a crowdfunding campaign to endow a new TIMARA Founders Fund in honor of the department's earliest proponents, Olly Wilson and Joh n Clough ' 53.
