Versipel New Music Season IX

We’ve got a blazing Season IX kicking off in December! Some big, big shows with some big, big ideas are coming your way including a show that combines choreography with a live performance of Steve Reich’s “Different Trains” as well as a Versipel commissioned piece by local composer James May that combines NOLA free improvisers with members of the Versipel Collective.

*December 12, 2022 @Cafe Istanbul: Versipel Collective performs “Sounds as Written” – a program featuring works from our last pre-COVID call for scores as well as pieces with and without electronics by local composers James May, Alexandria Smith and Jeff Albert.

* February, 2023 @TBA: Different Trains: The Versipel Collective and guests perform Reich’s iconic string quartet with new choreography. Also featuring a world premiere electronic work by Mendel Lee with dance!

* March 14, 2023 @University of New Orleans Recital Hall: Guest Artist: Chamber Cartel: Atlanta’s premiere new music group performs Morton Feldman’s evening length work “Crippled Symmetry”

* April, 2023 @TBA: Chaos Cultures I: The Versipel Collective performs a brand new work by James May that combines the Collective with local improvisers Justin Peake, Alexandria Smith and Byron Asher! Program will also includes works by Anthony Braxton and George Lewis.

We hope to see you at these shows!
