In just under a week, on April 26, you have the opportunity to hear the original instruments of Harry Partch in concert, under the direction of Dr. Charles Corey. Find more information and ticket link here, and there is a Facebook event page, as well.

In addition, the Seattle Times just published a nice feature on Corey and the instrument's current residency at the university. It's worth a read also for comments from Dr. Richard Karpen, chairman of the Music Department, who was integral in getting them to the campus (and the West coast, for that matter). UPDATE: We've just received notice of another good preview article, this one in the guise of a look at the Partch instruments, from radio station KING. Concert details as follow:
