Sound Wired Concerts presents: "Contrasts" featuring Latitude 49 and Peter Ferry

Latitude 49 is a dynamic mixed-chamber ensemble exploring new sounds, engaging diverse audiences, and holding hands with composers of today. Began as a student-initiative at the University of Michigan, L49's is quickly building an active presence on the new-music scene with performances across the Midwest and public radio. In an effort to foster future audiences, L49 strives to create dynamic and unforgettable concert experiences through ongoing collaborations with upcoming and established composers and artists.

L49's engagement with living composers involves active commissioning and premiere performances, recording projects, and ongoing friendship and promotion of exceptional music of today. Performances have included those at Chicago's Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Cultural Center, University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Chicago's Constellation, and a handful of art museums in the Greater Chicago Area. In a three-month span, L49 premiered five new works including works by Tomás I. Gueglio-Saccone (Doctoral student at the University of Chicago) and John Dorhauer (Professor at Elmhurst College and Chicago College of Performing Arts) as part of the Fresh Inc. Festival, along with WFMT radio broadcasts. In the 2013/14 season, Latitude 49 has performed at New Music Detroit's Strange Beautiful Music VI Festival, as well as being the featured ensemble of the University of Toledo's New Music Festival, with performances and workshops both at Toledo and Grand Valley State University. A staple at the University of Michigan, L49 has actively performed on Ann Arbor stages including Britton Recital Hall, MacIntosh Theater, and the UMMA (University of Michigan Museum of Art) concert series.


Celebrated as a "percussion genius presenting percussion in a stunning, thoughtful way," (Democrat and Chronicle) Peter Ferry is a young American percussion soloist quickly gaining recognition for re-imagining the classical concert experience through meaningful, entertaining performances of contemporary repertoire. A TEDx speaker, Ferry was invited to deliver the closing talk and performance on leveraging creativity through collaboration between disciplines, which was titled "Striking at the Edge".

Performing as a concerto soloist and in innovative recital projects, Ferry's 2013-2014 season sees commissions of several new works and performances across the United States including New York, St. Louis, Rochester, Providence, Chicago, and Baltimore, as well as a tour to Germany. An alumni of the Eastman School of Music, Ferry graduated with high honors, an Arts Leadership Program certificate, the first ever John Beck Percussion Scholarship, and the prestigious Performer's Certificate recognizing "outstanding performing ability." Eastman's Arts Leadership Program has awarded Ferry a generous Post-Graduate Fellowship with Alarm Will Sound for the 2013-2014 season. This position allows Ferry to occasionally perform with the ensemble as he learns firsthand how it produces ambitious and innovative performances of contemporary music.
