August 18th marks the start of our 2014 residency at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art! We'll be studying Hindustani music with teacher, singer and composer Warren Senders and Persian classical singing with Iranian performer and scholar Sepideh Raissadat. Michael Harrison (called "an American maverick" by Philip Glass) will write music informed by his three decades of study and practice of Indian music. Julia Wolfe, Bang on a Can co-director, will bring her bracing, fresh compositional voice to the ensemble. And singer/songwriter Sam Amidon, thanks to a commission by Lincoln Center White Lights Festival, will create new music to be premiered at MASS MoCA (and subsequently to be performed in the White Lights Festival in October).
Our concert on August 29th will include the rapturously beautiful Ritornello - music and film by ensemble member (and Pulitzer Prize winner) Caroline Shaw.
And for the first time, we'll be performing OUTDOORS in Courtyard C (weather permitting! Otherwise, Hunter Center. Plenty of seats this time!)
