On Saturday, December 2nd, 2017, ChamberLab (and friends) successfully played Erik Satie’s Vexations 840 times in a row in a marathon performance lasting nearly 16 hours, and in the process WE RAISED $16,731.85 FOR THE ACLU OF ARIZONA! It was … it was something else entirely.
This 16-hour performance event began at 8:00 AM at the Hotel Congress in Tucson, Arizona, and then marched in grand style across the street to Maynards Market at 10:00 PM, where it continued until midnight. Then we celebrated!
This first-of-its-kind performance was open to musicians of all ages and skill levels, on any instrument, and over 100 sponsors supported a great cause! Here is a video of the 840th and final repetition.
