Volti Concert - The Next Page
St. Mark's Lutheran Church
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:

Volti -- San Francisco's award-winning, leading-edge new music vocal ensemble -- opens its 37th Season, "The Next Page," focusing on an exploration of the work of three dynamic young composers.  

On this first of our "Next Page" concerts, we feature Amy Beth Kirsten, who has been praised by top-tier publications, including the Washington Post: "the music is complex and multilayered, rich in allusions, and often extraordinarily beautiful." Volti will sing the world premiere of her new work, "It is possible these things do not exist:," after Ursula Le Guin's short story "The Ones Who Walk Away" from "Omegas" and Izumi Shikibu's poem, "Although the wind"

This new commission will pair with "In the Black," Kirsten's Choral Arts Laboratory winning composition from 2007.  The audience is invited to an "Inter-ception" after the concertan interactive reception for the audience to share feedback on what they've just heard, and to connect them directly with the artists.

Also on the program:
Forrest Pierce's gorgeous "Gratitude Sutra," the 2012 Barlow Prize winner Volti premiered in 2014. Poem by Gary Snyder, "Prayer for the Great Family," from "Turtle Island." (To be recorded for future release.)
Stacy Garrop's "Songs of Lowly Life." Poetry by Paul Laurence Dunbar. (To be recorded for future release.)
And a beautiful work by young Lithuanian-born composer Žibuoklė Martinaitytė"The Blue of Distance"

Conductor:  Robert Geary
