Much like a prism breaks light into its component parts, the PRISM Concert breaks our instrumental music department into its varied components. The concept for PRISM was started in 1975 at the Eastman School of Music as a way to showcase the talents of the individual rather than the entire group. It also addressed the three issues usually associated with public concerts.
Concerts generally don’t show the individual’s talents. Concerts can be too long. The audience can be unintentionally rude by clapping in the wrong place.
PRISM deals with all three by having mostly individuals or small groups perform; By keeping the entire concert held to no longer than 60 minutes; And by asking the audience to hold all applause until the very end.

Members of the Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School band again perform Terry Riley's 1964 minimalistic masterpiece "In C" in the Ferrini Dramatics Center.
With fifty-three melodic fragments played in sequence with the durations of each fragment performed at the discretion of the individual performers. All fragments work together, hence the title "In C".
