We're looking forward to meeting the new batch of composers at UChicago this year, and we're diving right in with (post-Doc fellow) Aaron Helgeson's Brief Regards for Sometimes and Maria Kaoutzani's jaune doré.
This event is free and open to the public
*From the UChicago Music Dept. website:
The New Music Ensemble’s autumn concert celebrates the talented composers who have just joined our Department of Music: Postdoctoral Fellow Aaron Helgeson and graduate student composers Alison Yun-Fei Jiang, Maria Kaoutzani, Kevin Kay, and Ted Moore. Ensemble-in-Residence Spektral Quartet performs Helgeson’s 2006 string quartet Brief regards for sometimes and Artist-in-Residence Daniel Pesca presents his 2012 piano solo, Through glimpses of unknowing. Other NME musicians perform recent solo and chamber works by Jiang, Kaoutzani, Kay, and Moore.
A reception will follow.
