8 hour Piano-thon

Today is John Cage Day. That’s right, on what is the 100th anniversary of renowned American composer John Cage’s birth, today the world is celebrating the legendary musician’s achievements.

A FREE concert is being held at Elder Hall today (from midday) which will showcase some of Cage’s compositions, including an eight-hour piano piece aptly titled As Slow As Possible. Accompanied by soprano Kate Macfarlane and bass player Christopher Roberts, Australian pianist Stephen Whittington
will be performing what could be the longest piece of continuous music ever staged in Adelaide.

Stephen Whittington joined us on Breakfast with Tim Brunero to discuss what he has in store for those who choose to head along to Elder Hall this afternoon.
