On Saturday, August 13., the Colly Soleri Music Center presented CALIFORNIA EAR UNIT, a internationally recognized group of musicians. This concert gives young composers a chance to have their works played by the group. Most of the pieces were performed for the first time and specifically written for EAR UNIT.

The concert was especially exciting because of the seasonal monsoon wind and rain. It provided an additional challenge to the already difficult music compositions. Although, lightning and rain by no way detracted from the experience and only added overall electricity to the EAR UNIT.
