In our fifth season, we focus on the power and influence of the past on our present. In October, we explore humanity's relationship with nature. January invites a conversation between compositional voices past and present. In March, we meditate on presence, absence, legacy, and reputation in the age of the Internet. We close our season in May with a lush tapestry of poetry and music that reflects on the passage of time.

A GARDEN'S TIME PIECE

POSTPONED until later in 2020, due to COVID-19.

We are thrilled to have our debut performance at the Chicago Cultural Center, under the auspices of New Music Chicago Presents. Inspired by our October 2019 cycle, we repurposed our program to pair Jenni Brandon's Found Objects: On the Beach with two 21st century works. 

 

Once this concert is rescheduled, it will be free and open to the public!
