Scenes from Whaling Trip

Here are a few pictures from Wednesday night’s “Voice of the Wail!” concert at Penn. There were some fine performances by the Daedalus Quartet, pianist Greg DeTurck, and College House Music Fellows Michelle Kelly, Matt Bengston, and Tom Kraines. And who could resist the masks for Crumb’s Voice of the Whale? ( L to R: Michelle Kelly, Matt Bengston and Tom Kraines,)

The surviving members of the so-called Penn Troika (Penn composition faculty members Rochberg, Wernick, and Crumb) were present, along with the current composition faculty and some alums. Here are (L to R) George Crumb, Jay Reise and myself:

and a whole pod of whales, I mean group of Penn composers (seated, l to r: retired faculty members Richard Wernick, George Crumb; standing: current faculty members Jay Reise, Anna Weesner, myself, Penn alumnus Philip Maneval):

More about the concert here, here, here and here.
