Some may think that to "prepare" a piano means to have it in place, dusted, and tuned. But the American composer John Cage (1912–92) wrote specific pieces for "prepared" piano, and visiting pianist and scholar Christopher Durrenberger '84 enlightened the school community about Cage's intentions during his visit to the campus September 28–30.
