William GRANT STILL Lyric Quartet
Devonté HYNES Perfectly Voiceless
Ryan CARTER A Shared Space (World Premiere)
at JUMP – Pioneer Room
For our final community concert of the season, you're invited to immerse yourself in music that explores relationships — with friends, with time, with space, and with ourselves. At turns sweet, sentimental, nostalgic and bright, William Grant Still celebrates the beauty of friendship in his Lyric Quartet. Devonté Hynes' Perfectly Voiceless takes us on a perpetual motion journey where we find ourselves suspended in music that is part minimalism, part pop, and entirely delightful. Then, the tables turn as we explore our shared space with a world premiere performance by Ryan Carter that features audience participation.
Ryan Carter composes music that explores and critically examines new possibilities presented by emerging technologies. Described by the New York Times as "imaginative ... like, say, a Martian dance party," Ryan's music has been commissioned by Carnegie Hall, the MATA Festival, the National Flute Association, and many individuals and ensembles.
