JAMES K. BASS, CONDUCTOR Furniture or architecture might come to mind when one hears the phrase mid-century modern, but the creative style also impacted the music of the time. Inspired by rapid technological advancements and a post-war world, artists in the mid-20th century strove to predict and create the art of the future. Composers like Arnold Schoenberg experimented with new sounds and compositional techniques. At the same time, others like Alan Hovhaness and Samuel Barber returned to styles of the past with new understanding. You’ll likely discover a mid-century work you’ve never heard before on this program for a cappella chorus.
PROGRAM TO INCLUDE:
The Brightness of Our Noon – Alan Hovhaness
Twelfth Night – Samuel Barber
Dreimal Tausend Jahre – Arnold Schoenberg
All events have a Pre-Concert Conversation 1 hour before the concert!
