“Essential Art: Essential Elements” concludes with a searing, earth-moving performance featuring “Continental Divide” by Derek Bermel, “Ground Swell” by Steve Mackey with guest artist Hsin-Yun Huang (Violist), “Inner Demons” by Stacy Garrop, “Racconto dall’Inferno” by Louis Andriessen. In the beginning there was light and water, but in the end the earth rises up and is consumed in flames!
The audience is invited to stay for a post-concert reception and discussion with the composers and performers. There will be complimentary wine from VinDiVino and refreshments.
