Concert V: Versipel New Music Presents The Versipel Collective
WHEN: Sunday, June 26th at 5:00 pm
WHERE: Marigny Opera House – Musical Meditation
For its season finale concert, Versipel New Music returns to the Marigny Opera House with a program of sonic landscapes from far and wide. The Versipel Collective presents chamber music by composers from the United States, Canada, Korea and Austria. This diverse body of music is united together by the idea of space and resonance. Each work in its own way embodies sound as a kinetic structure, boundless and free.
On the program, Versipel New Music is proud to present two works from its annual Call for Scores, works chosen from over two hundred submissions from around the world*:
Forest Elf for violin by Woosung Cho (Korea)
Hibakusha for flute by Aaron Alon (USA)
(*Bind, Weave, Spin for piano trio by William Cole (UK) was also selected for programming on Versipel’s 2016-17 concert season)
Also on the program
New York composer Katherine Hoover‘s haunting and lyrical Two Preludes for flute and percussion
Jason Treuting‘s wildly theatrical Thank You (_____) for percussion quartet
Heinz Karl Gruber‘s eccentric and quirky Exposed Throat for solo trumpet
Two spatial, open score works, Quickening and Surface Tension by Vancouver composer Jordan Nobles will bookend the concert, creating an immersive sonic experience showcasing the resonant space of the venue.
The Versipel Collective includes Kate Withrow, Laura Patterson, Brittany Piatz, Mendel Lee, Andrew Szypula, Stephen Tumblin, Reshanda Yates, Karen Ray, Philip Schuessler and Shane Courville. Free; donations graciously accepted.
