Our second concert of the season is a true celebration of what newEar has accomplished in the past 25 years and what we hope to accomplish in the next 25 years!
This concert features local composers and former commissions. Jennifer Higdon, Barr Institute Laureate composer at UMKC will be featured, as well as Kansas composers Tonio Ko and Ingrid Stölzel, and former newEar composer-in-residence (1998-2001) James Mobberley. We will also pay tribute to former newEar special guest (1997) and famed composer Pauline Oliveros, who passed away in 2016.
In lieu of a traditional pre-concert lecture, notes about the selections will be given by board member J.J. Pearse during set changes.
