I SPEAK MUSIC ≈ APRIL 16th / 8PM

“I Speak Music” project is dedicated to exploring the possible creative use of text with the expressivity of our human natural voice as a specific vocal/ instrumental type in contemporary music. We like to present music and expand the repertoire written particularly for our shared communicating and expressive “instrument”. In the evening of April 16, we are excited to present a program of solo and duo natural voice, juxtaposing early pioneering works with recently written pieces for this particular vocal type. We will make music with phonemes, words, numbers and vocal noise!

THE MUSIC OF PHILIP GLASS ≈ APRIL 19th / 7PM

 THE COMPOSER FOCUS CONCERT SERIES: 

 Philip Glass (1937-) is probably the most famous (or at least mostly

 widely heard) contemporary composer. His music can be heard in a  

 number of award-winning movies (Koyaanisqatsi, The Truman Show,

 and The Hours, among others), in his own ensemble concerts, as well

 as at opera houses and concert halls around the world. His repetition-

 based overall style and dramatic harmonies are instantly recognizable.

 

 This concert will feature his music for solo piano (Metamorphoses), as

 well his String Quartet No. 4, one of his greatest and most moving

 chamber works.
