These specially curated programs by Music Director Gemma New highlight fresh and exciting works by living composers.
Music Director Gemma New conducts works driven by movement. Paul Frehner’s Voluptuous Panic sets visceral excitement to musical form while Kelly-Marie Murphy’s Dragon Unfolding portrays the drama of an origami dragon rising and taking flight. Luis Ramirez’s Koatl evokes an Aztec deity emerging from an ancient temple. The flow of water over Webster’s Falls inspires Abigail Richardson-Schulte's Downstream, while Jordan Pal’s On the Double offers a bright and heroic end to the evening.
