"Soundscapes: The Music of Edward Ruchalski"

In a collaborative concert between Le Moyne College’s music program and the Syracuse Society for New Music, the College will present “Soundscapes, The Music of Edward Ruchalski” on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Ruchalski is on the faculty at Le Moyne College.

The performance will take place in the Panasci Family Chapel at Le Moyne, and will feature regular Society for New Music performers, including clarinetist John Friedrichs, violinist Ann McIntyre, cellist Gregory Wood, percussionist Robert Bridge, pianist Ida Trebicka, mezzo-soprano Danan Tsan and Douglas Quin, laptop.

The concert will also feature the premiere of Ruchalski’s The End of Sleep, a choral work that will be performed by the Le Moyne College Chamber Singers, under the direction of Jocelyn Rauch.

In addition to this premiere, Ruchalski has modified many of the works to be performed with these specific musicians in mind, especially for the evening’s performance. “This concert gave me one of the most creative summer projects I’ve ever had,” says Ruchalski. “I was able to look at all of my work, compose new works, and arrange older works for performers whose playing I love. I’m blessed.”
The Society for New Music was founded in 1971 and is now celebrating 43 years presenting new music in Syracuse. Founding member Neva Pilgrim says of Ruchalski, “Sound artist, composer and guitarist Ed Ruchalski is one of Syracuse’s creative treasures.”
