Adelphi holds Larson Legacy Concert
The latest Larson Legacy Concert at the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) is an exciting workshop production of César Alvarez’s new musical, NOISE. The concert will take place on Sunday, February 19 at 3:00 p.m. in the Olmsted Theatre in the AUPAC, 1 South Ave, Garden City.
NOISE, a new musical, is inspired by a strange little piece of critical theory, which proposes that music, as the organization of noise, was the earliest expression of civilization. And if music precedes all forms of political economy, it follows that we should be able to make a musical which designs a new and better society. While NOISE may not succeed in generating an entirely new society, it does offer some radical kindness in the package of an absurd little musical.
NOISE was commissioned and given a workshop production by Playwrights Horizons Theater School at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
The Larson Legacy Concert Series at AUPAC celebrates the next generation of artists at the college home of the creator of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical RENT Jonathan Larson (’82).
