About

Step into a dreamlike world with Mason and a cadre of skilled artists to explore hot-off-the-press chamber music conducted by Fawzi Haimor. A major string quartet by John Adams, in celebration of the Pulitzer Prize–winning composer's 70th birthday, anchors this eclectic program that also includes a piece by one of Adams's students, Gabriella Smith's intriguing Carrot Revolution; two works entitled Ravishment and Drama / Self Pity by composer and vocalist Lisa Bielawa, who joins the performance; Chris Cerrone's eerie electro-acoustic The Night Mare; and Ellébore, a whimsical dream evocation by David Hertzberg. Following the concert, stay for the free after party featuring DJ Moose!

Performance Timing: Approximately 1 hour, with no intermission.
