An evening of music “set in stone”

Set in Stone features David Dzubay’s “Kukulkan II”, which imagines exotic rituals that took place at the Mayan temple of the same name, and world premieres by local composers Brian Herrington and Desmond Ikegquonu. Also on the program are Anna Weesner’s “Light and Stone”, which evokes the sense of light gathering deep in the center of rock, and Eric Stokes’ “Rock and Roll”, which is performed with actual river stones and gravel.
