Join us for our 2019-20 season opener and MIT debut, where we perform works by dear friends (and family)! As part of the JPSQAfterDark series that explores the contemporary classical side of our performing lives, we explore 21st century works that tie us to Boston through our personal and aesthetic relationships. These contemporary works will be interspersed with our tonal heritage through movements of Sciarrino's Pagine (1998).
Steve Snowden: Take This Hammer (2015)
Marti Epstein: Bluff (1997)
Jack Wilds: The Red Cape (2017)
Stratis Minakakis (NEC): Alismono ke Chairomai (2011)
Kate Salfelder (NEC): Stolen From Above (2015)
...and more TBA
Concert is FREE and open to the public (Donations accepted)

And yes, there will be red balloons. Quite a bit of them.
