MusicNOW: Companions

7:00 PM
Monday, May 5, 2014

Music collides with imagery, dance and architecture in this final MusicNOW concert of the season. Oscar Bettison offers a sprawling and engaging response to old nativist lithography for chamber orchestra, Anna Clyne’s visceral work for solo cello is choreographed by Kitty McNamee of the Los Angeles-based Hysterica Dance Company and Andrew Norman’s highly distinctive response to Roman architecture completes the program.

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.
