FACSIMILE

May 14, 2022 | 7:30pm 

May 21, 2022 | 3:00pm 

VIRTUAL REPLAY: June 2022

Co-commissioned with Citywater and New Music Detroit, this is the Chicago premiere of Griffin Candey's Facsimile: A Chamber Cello Concerto. In the composer's words, the piece "delves into memory — how memory can be something... personal or collective, quiet or weaponized." Rounding out the program are Aaron Jay Kernis' Air and Mark Mellits' Tight Sweater.

Bridget Andes, viola

Talar Khosdeghian, piano

Justin Peters, percussion

Kelly Quesada, cello

Caroline Rothstein, violin

Daniel Williams, clarinet

Both live performances on January 22 and 23 will take place at Immanuel Lutheran Church (1500 W. Elmdale Ave., Chicago).

PAIRED: THE SONG CYCLE

VIRTUAL REPLAY: MARCH 2022

We continue to explore duo repertoire, or music written for two musicians. In this year's rendition of our ongoing "Paired" series, our Co-Directors have co-curated a program of song cycles that feature poetry by Gustav Pfleger-Morávsky, Wendell Berry, and Mary Oliver.
