Conductor Bobby Collins leads the Sound Ensemble in a performance of the Hagen Chamber Symphony as the closing work of the festival. Commissioned by the Albany Symphony Orchestra for the Capital Region Heritage Project, 2003, the Chamber Symphony was first performed at the Albany Institute of History and Art by members of the Albany Symphony Orchestra conducted by Music Director David Alan Miller on 8 March 2003. "Hagen describes the work in spiritual terms—" writes Joseph Dalton, "a reflection of the current stage of his writing as well as the mystical aspects of the three paintings he selected."
NUMUS Northwest is a day-long event dedicated to the creation, performance, and experience of new music in Seattle. This year’s theme is the past, present, and future of contemporary classical music in Seattle. Inspired by the New Music Gathering, the leadership team (many of whom have attended at least one NMG) has a strong desire to recreate the community-building, collaborative-natured, and artistically-stunning event with a focus on musicians and artists in the Northwest… (but not exclusively so.)
NUMUS Northwest will take place on Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 9am-10pm at Cornish College of the Arts, Kerry Hall.
Tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets.
