A friend just forwarded this to me (I don't know where he got it).
* DAVID BAKER SET TO DEBUT 'CONCERTINO FOR CELLULAR PHONES AND
Distinguished Professor David N. Baker's new composition, "Concertino
for Cellular Phones and Orchestra," will incorporate audience members'
cell phones in order to create a shared participatory performance
experience. It is scheduled to kick off the 20th anniversary season of
the Chicago Sinfonietta on October 1 and 2 under the direction of
Maestro Paul Freeman.
David Baker is a distinguished professor of jazz studies at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I assume this is serious.
