Ensemble Evolution Opening Recital Featuring Matana Roberts, Liza Lim, Tyshawn Sorey, Lisa Harris, Aiyun Huang, and ICE
Ode to Gust Burns by the indomitable Tyshawn Sorey and played by an ensemble of ICE superstars kicks off a kaleidoscopic faculty concert that ranges from the intimacy of two brief but colorful duos by Australian composer Liza Lim to the international musings (from New York to Copenhagen) of Sorey in partnership with the extraordinary violinist, Jennifer Curtis. We highlight Lisa Harris, vocalist and composer in a new work for herself and our ICE faculty.
Do not miss a new work by returning faculty member Matana Roberts, who inspired and amazed us in 2018 with her artistry as saxophonist and composer. She gives full voice to music that resonates from the enormous space of her imagination and reaches across all boundaries. With the extraordinary talent on stage, this evening will be more of a launching pad than a concert. Buckle up!
