Livewire 3: Then and Now

Imagine. Ignite passion. Get angry. Enter the mind of the composer. Join us in our second annual Livewire Festival, bringing together diverse composers and performers from the Baltimore-Washington area in programs designed to provoke discussion and engagement. In the words of one of our dedicated audience members, "Why should I listen to Mozart again when I can hear Tom Goldstein play flower pots?"

Presented by the UMBC Department of Music with support from InterArts.

Contact Tom Goldstein for more information.
Contact Tom Moore for Press information.
