This weekend, Saratoga Arts presents a concert of works by multi-Instrumentalist/Composer Gary Schall written for piano, voice and marimba. The work is entitled "Memory of an Own: Variations on Steve Reich Themes In Memory of James Preiss." The music marks the 58th anniversary of the JFK assassination with original modern-minimalist music and a multimedia video montage of the JFK funeral created by Schall in collaboration with Skidmore Digital Media Department. Gary Schall began performing the music of legendary minimalist composer Steve Reich when he was 16 years old and performed his first concert with Reich when he was 19. Schall has continued to perform with Reich for over four decades. He’s also collaborated with choreographers and other creators, sometimes even helping to invent new instruments.
