Piano Circus, with the Bowed Piano Ensemble 

When: Wed., Oct. 5 2011

With six grand pianos at its disposal, London's Piano Circus may not be able to match the epic noise of Glenn Branca's 100 electric guitars symphony, but the sextet can definitely take on the intricate layering of Steve Reich's gamelan-inspired early compositions. In fact, the group first came together to perform Reich's "Six Pianos," and has since had works written for it by folks like Brian Eno and Terry Riley. Tonight's concert will include pieces by Reich and other contemporary composers, including Colorado Springs' own Stephen Scott (whose Bowed Piano Ensemble will join the group for the premiere of his "Mr. Fibonacci at Work and Play"). The concert, which is free and open to the public, takes place at 7:30 in CC's Packard Hall (5 W. Cache la Poudre St., tinyurl.com/ccpianocircus). — Bill Forman
