Affinity Chamber Players opens its 2009-2010 season with a concert showcasing three works recently submitted in response to Affinity’s call for scores: Christopher Gainey‘s ballet score, No Sleep for the Wicked; Arthur Gottschalk‘s poignant cycle of Dark Songs, with texts by Walt Whitman; Neil Thornock‘s Spin; also, the haunting Eleven Echoes of Autumn by the great American composer George Crumb. The acclaimed Seattle-based mezzo-soprano Melissa Plagemann joins the ensemble, conducted by Jonathan Pasternack.
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 (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
