An Evening of Tibetan Singing Bowls II

An Evening of Tibetan Singing Bowls II

Last year, the chair of the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music, Carolyn Bremer, began collecting a lot of Tibetan Singing Bowls. I am not sure the exact number of bowls that she owns, but it is probably around +/- 50. During the Spring 2011 semester, Carolyn decided she wanted to record the bowls and I asked if I could come to the session and bring a bunch of my mallets. An hour or so later, we had recorded many different sized bowls with many different mallets. (I will have to see if I can get some of the samples to post here). After the recording session, we talked about presenting a concert in the Fall. The first Singing Bowl Concert was September 2, 2011 and it was a huge success. We got a lot of positive feedback and we decided to do it again! This semester, we have added Rychard Cooper and George Wheeler to the concert. The concert is a free form, improvisational concert. During the concert, you will hear a lot of Tibetan Bowls, some gongs, bass drums, and a electronic performance of some of the sampled bowls from the recording session.

We hope you can join us next Friday at 8pm. For more information, check out the Facebook Event Page.
