Ancient Voices, Contemporary Contexts: Native American Musical Updates
Sunday, November 10, 4 p.m.
World premieres of works by Native American composers (Peruvian and Mohican) that weave their heritages into new classical music as a context for hearing our ancestors through a modern prism. “Whistling Vessels” by Jorge Villavicencio Grossmann incorporates samples of indigenous Peruvian “singing vessels.” “The Purchase of Manhattan” by Brent Michael Davids is a dramatic re-staging of the mythic beginnings of “New York” for $24 worth of beads. Commissioned by the Society for New Music
