At 5 p.m. a private "concert-concert" (as Cage was fond of calling it) of Erik Satie's music was held in Putah Creek Lodge on the campus of the University of California in Davis. The concert was invitational, limited to one hundred persons at a charge of $5 each. Patricia Lee performed several nocturnes for solo piano; Patricia Woodbury sang three songs with Cage accompanying her on the piano; and Peggy and Milton Salkind performed a newly finished, unpublished transcription for two pianos by Cage of Satie's “Socrate”.
That evening, several concerts were held at different locations on the campus. From 7:30 p.m. until midnight, Satie's “Furniture Music” for orchestra was played continuously by members of the University Symphony Orchestra in the lobby of Freeborn Hall. One had to walk through this orchestra in order to reach the performing area where Cage's new piece for the occasion, “33 1/3”, was being played for the major portion of the evening.
