Event description: 

Marguerite L. Brooks and Thomas C. Duffy, conductors

Tawnie Olson’s Les Voyelles, for cello, percussion, and chamber chorus, takes Rimbaud’s celebrated poem as the starting point for a wide-ranging exploration of vocal and instrumental colour, evoking the sounds of buzzing flies, angelic trumpets, and Javanese gamelan.  It is dedicated to Marguerite Brooks and the cello-percussion duo New Morse Code.

Also on the program is Lutoslawski’s Trois poèmes d’Henri Michaux, composed in 1962-63.
