Celebrate the sensuous side of music, under the full moon. Composer/accordionist Albert Behar teams up with soprano Ariadne Greif to perform his original song cycle Calligrammes, which celebrates Apollinaire’s visual poetry—with original costumes by Gretchen Vitamvas. The women’s vocal ensemble Vajra Voices, directed by Karen Clark and joined by vielle player Michelle Levy, brings its “clear, sweet, and strong” sound to groundbreaking works by Hildegard von Bingen and Guillaume de Machaut. And we are proud to host the premiere of Full Bloom, a work created by Edmund Campion that features cellist and improviser Danielle DeGruttola, who uses technologies developed at the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies to generate a multichannel garden of sound.
