c3 presents Fonema Consort
Our first concert of the 2015-16 season is right around the corner and it will be a great evening!
We will feature guest composer Orlando Jacinto Garcia. Orlando is on the faculty of Florida International University and is director of the New Music Miami ISCM Festival. His music - spare, quiet and spicy - has been too little heard in Chicago. We will present four of his works: Core Interludes, oscurecimiento gradual, el silencio despues de la lluvia, and entre michigan y jefferson. The widely varying instrumentation of these works will provide a beautiful soundscape and present a real insight into Orlando's compositional output.
We will be joined on this program by another Chicago-based contemporary music group, the Fonema Consort. They already have a close relationship with Orlando's music, so it seemed natural for us to enlist their energies as well.
In addition to Orlando's works, four Composers' Consortium member works will receive performances. Lawrence Axelrod's Heterophonies, Martha Horst's Exchanges, Laura Schwendinger's Kay Ryan Songs and Elizabeth Start's More Talking Object Songs fill out an ample and satisfying program of mixed solo, vocal and chamber music.
All of this will be performed in the beautifully warm acoustics of the North Shore Baptist Church, a real gem in the Andersonville neighborhood. (There's a very beautiful Loredo Taft altar piece as well!)
We do hope you can join us for this very special opening of our 2015-16 season. Tickets will also be available at the door.
