Listen to the voices of today in three concerts!
Delight in the Conspirare listening experience with new music for voices and instruments. Deepen your experience during conversations with composers and artists before and after the concerts. Join us for the world premiere of Songs for Muska, composed by 2017-2018 American Prize winner Jocelyn Hagen. Hagen’s musical textures and colors sing in these settings of landays (2-line Pashto folk poems) translated by Eliza Griswold and Farzana Marie’s translations of poems by young Afghani women.
Launch your March Moderns journey with Vanguard, showcasing extraordinary works for voices by three of today’s boldest compositional voices: Caroline Shaw, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, and Andrea Clearfield.
Kile Smith’s ethereal new work, a setting of St. John of the Cross’ Spiritual Canticle for voices, three cellos, and vibraphone, will surround listeners in a sensual sound bath to conclude the festival.
