Program

  • This Midnight Hour, a single-movement orchestral composition by former Mead Composer-in-Residence Anna Clyne, evokes a visual journey for the listener. Inspired by movement and being women.
  • Rounds, Mead Composer-in-Residence Jessie Montgomery’s composition, commissioned for and performed by pianist Awadagin Pratt, is inspired by the constancy, rhythms and duality of life that impact all living things. Inspired by the T.S. Eliot’s epic poem Four Quartets.
  • Her Story, a CSO co-commission by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe that captures the passion and perseverance of women who have led the fight for representation and gender equality. A 40-minute theatrical experience for orchestra and women’s vocal ensemble, the piece is the latest in a series of compositions by Wolfe that highlights monumental and turbulent moments in American history. Also inspired by a text that says equality should not be denied to anyone because of their sex.
