Knoxville-based contemporary music ensemble, Nief-Norf, is presenting not one, but four concerts at this year's Big Ears Festival, including the opening concert at the official launch party.  Joined by special guest, percussionist Greg Stuart, the group will perform music by Michael Pisaro, Michael Gordeon, Pauline Oliveros, and Christopher Burns. Nief-Norf will "set the tone" of the festival by opening (at the launch party) with Oliveros' "Single Strike Roll Meditation," which requires the audience and performers to be fully present and in-the-moment.

Daniel Magilow, associate professor of German, discusses his upcoming talk for the Conversations and Cocktails series. 

Ask someone what their favorite opera is and they're likely to respond with Verdi's La Traviata, and for good reason! Verdi's opera is beautiful, gut-wrenching, and relatable, with an interesting story and complex characters. His score is full of some of the most beautiful and recognizable music in the operatic repertoire. And although Knoxville's opera fans may be familiar with Verdi's opera, they will not be familiar with Marble City Opera's unique presentation of it, which will take place at Historic Westwood, a home in the Sequoyah Hills area of Knoxville.
