5/5 Today in Weird Music History:  1977.  The premiere of Star Child, an oratorio by visionary American composer, George Crumb.  The piece requires chorus, solo soprano, antiphonal children’s voices, male speaking choir, bell ringers, and large orchestra.  But more important to rehearsal planning is the fact that it also requires 4 conductors to perform the piece.
