Jim Fischer
"Dark Valleys"

Contemporary music ensemble CODE (Columbus Ohio Discovery Ensemble) continues to champion modern "classical" music in central Ohio with the help of the Johnstone Fund. For this "New Music at Short North Stage" concert, CODE will perform five pieces for a variety of instrumentations, the earliest of which was composed in 1962. The program title comes from Ohio native and electro-acoustic music pioneer Donald Erb's "Sunlit Peaks and Dark Valleys" for clarinet, violin and piano.
