The 41st Annual Festival of New American Music closes with Terry and Gyan Riley, along with pianist Sarah Cahill. Terry and Gyan Riley have been performing together since the late 90's and have appeared in concert throughout the USA and Europe. Terry is a legendary composer and performer who was a pioneer of the minimalist school of Western classical music. His son Gyan is a Brooklyn-based guitarist and composer described by The New Yorker as a "one-man American-music machine".

Pianist Sarah Cahill was recently called “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde” by the New York Times. Her discography includes over twenty albums on the New Albion, CRI, New World, Tzadik, Albany, Innova, Cold Blue, Other Minds, Pinna, and Irritable Hedgehog labels.Cahill’s four-CD box set, Eighty Trips Around the Sun: Music by and for Terry Riley, was released in 2017 on the Irritable Hedgehog label and features Terry Riley’s solo and four-hand works and eight world premiere recordings of commissioned works in honor of his 80th birthday.
