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 (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.
