Description of the concert being rehearsed:
This program examines the legacy of family, community and country. Two premieres by outstanding contemporary composer-performers anchor this program which also includes works imbued with a sense of place by the Czech composer Antonín Dvořák and Americans Charles Ives and Michael Abels. Interdisciplinary artist PaviElle French, a native of Saint Paul’s Rondo neighborhood, presents a new work dedicated to the memory of her mother, while Syrian clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh reaches into his childhood to write a piece inspired by the rhythms of the Syrian pledge of allegiance that he was required to repeat every morning in school.
A Requiem for Zula by PaviElle Marissa French is made possible by a grant from the American Composers Forum with funds provided by the Jerome Foundation.
Please note: Specific works and artists involved in the rehearsal are to be determined.
