WORLD PREMIERES by two of the Central Coast's most talented composers  Michael McGushin and Barry Phillips  bring indigenous resonances to an otherwise globally-focused program.
Michael McGushin and Sheila Willey continue their lyrical simpatico with Michael's newly composed "Oddities and Observations," a collection of songs on poems by Kay Ryan. Barry Phillips brings us a new trio for harp, violin and violoncello.

Different approaches...there are worlds of difference between the seductively floating and unpredictable textures of James Tenney's Tableau Vivants, and the lean and crisply, visceral settings of cowboy tunes by Bryce Dessner in Murder Ballades. And those differences are sooo complementary!!

The program includes a wondrous choral set by The Ariose Singers featuring music by György Ligeti and Meredith Monk. Textural plays of night and day ignite Ligeti's Nacht und Morgen, while Monk's Panda Chant, is charming, imaginative and funny as choral music ever gets!
