Performances


#Persona: Exploring Identity through Music

Saturday, February 22 at 8 p.m.

Gould Rehearsal Hall, 1616 Locust Street

This concert of diverse and engaging music focuses on composers who project their internal, personal identities onto their musical voices, allowing their ethnicity, sexuality, religion, and national origin to shine through.



Ayre

Saturday, April 4 at 8 p.m.

Gould Rehearsal Hall, 1616 Locust Street

Osvaldo Golijov’s song cycle Ayre weaves together musical strands from Spain, North Africa, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, and his native South America to create a new musical language of breathtaking creative expression. Sounds of technology and worldwide folk traditions combine with Western classical instruments to create a dramatic compendium of ancient storytelling through modern sonorities.
