Join us for our spring season of Light & Sound Concerts, the innovative classical concert series produced by Julianne Klopotic.

Miguel Frasconi uses electronics and an instrumentarium of glass objects to create music from a uniquely imagined tradition. His glass instruments are struck, blown, stroked, smashed, and otherwise coaxed into vibration. Miguel has worked closely with composers John Cage, Jon Hassell, James Tenney, Morton Subotnick, and has collaborated with many choreographers, including Alonzo King and modern dance pioneer Anna Halprin. He was a founding member of The Glass Orchestra, the internationally renowned new music ensemble featuring all glass instruments. Frasconi is a member of Ne(x)tworks, one of NYC’s leading new music ensemble, and teaches at Bard College where he directs the Bard Laptop Orchestra (BLOrk).
