Name: Music In The Stacks: Patrick Higgins
Date: March 24, 2019
Time: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM EDT
Hudson Area Library is pleased to announce Music in the Stacks, a series of free Sunday afternoon concerts featuring local and international artists throughout 2019 and hosted by Hudson area youth organizations. These concerts reflect a wide range of musical styles, genres, instruments and cultures – giving the community new musical experiences and opportunities for cultural exchange. The first concert will feature Patrick Higgins, a Hudson based experimental music composer, hosted by Operation Unite NY. Higgins has been described by The New Yorker magazine as one of the “prime movers of the local avant-garde”, and an “exacting avant-classical guitarist” by Time Out NY. He has composed works for the country’s leading ensembles, including orchestral works, percussion cycles, and string quartets. He has scored music for television, museum exhibition and feature-length and short films. Higgins plays and composes in ZS, which the New York Times called “one of the strongest avant-garde bands in New York.” His music has been performed in over 20 countries and at some of the world’s leading music festivals.
