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. Chris demonstrated to the community that Cage, sometimes dismissed as an eccentric who played around with musical sounds, was a serious composer.

The Friction String Quartet, guest musicians at Loomis Chaffee, performed and shared their expertise with students in a master class setting in Hubbard Performance Hall on Wednesday.
