Millennium Park, Jay Pritzker Pavilion, free

Alan Pierson, Ben Bolter, and Taichi Fukumura, conductors

Composer Edgard Varèse’s emphasis on timbre, rhythm, and emerging technologies inspired a multitude of musicians who came of age during the 1960s and ’70s, among them guitarist and composer Frank Zappa. The Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra and Contemporary Music Ensemble celebrate the spirit of experimentation that united the two composers with a program featuring Zappa as a “virtual emcee” in recordings discussing his Varèse experiences. The Northwestern University Percussion Ensemble is featured in Varèse’s Ionisation.

Frank Zappa, Dog Breath Variations/Uncle Meat and Pedro’s Dowry: yes, that’s right

Edgard Varèse, Ionisation, Intégrales, and Amériques

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like this is the first time the work's subtitle makes it into a public concert program. hmm

And they listed Uncle Meat too, where programs often list just Dog Breath Variations but then they play both.

I've just never heard of "yes that's right" being part of the title. A quick look at FZ Lyrics brought no info confirming that. But I shoulda just used the Google...

...always more to learn with Frank....

searching I noticed this planned performance as well by the same group two days before

FZ himself never made no public mention of it, not even in concert programs. But it's certainly there in the Munchkin Edition score (although not in the "reduction").
