MusicNOW: Folk Songs
Monday, February 3, 2014
The lyrical and haunting vision of CSO Composer-in-Residence Anna Clyne comes to life in this concert informed by folk music and song. A world premiere of her settings of Emily Dickinson is complemented by a virtuosic electro-acoustic work of Argentinian Martin Matalon and a re-imagination of old-time string band music by Mason Bates.
MusicNOW receives funding through a leadership challenge grant from Irving Harris Foundation, Joan W. Harris. Major support is also provided by Cindy Sargent and the Sally Mead Hands Foundation.
