Led by Co-Artistic Directors Julia Tai and Jeremy Jolley, the Seattle Modern Orchestra opens its second season with two monumental pieces that interpret poetry in very different ways: Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, OP. 21 (1912), and George Crumb’s Night Music I (1963). Both works feature soprano Maria Mannisto, pianists Oksana Ezhokina & Harumi Flesher, percussionist/narrators Gunnar Folsom & Matthew Kocmieroski; with Jessica Polin, flute/piccolo; Angelique Poteat, clarinet/bass-clarinet; Brittany Boulding, violin; Jason Totzke, viola; Maria Scherer Wilson, cello; Julia Tai, conductor.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
