ALIAS presents “Unbounded Creativity,” a concert celebrating the legacy of composers who immigrated to America. Artistic Director Zeneba Bowers says, “We enjoy in this country a wealth of artistic expression drawn from all over the globe. We wanted to celebrate the fact that most of our beloved musical traditions are the result of immigrants to the U.S. bringing their creative culture to our shores. We as musicians benefit from having such a variety of music to choose from. Therefore, so do our audiences.”
The program features pieces by Bright Sheng, Ola Gjeilo, Yotam Haber, Mohammed Fairouz, Béla Bartók and Irving Berlin. Special guests include Vox Grata Women’s Choir, mezzo soprano Gayle Shay, and a Blair School of Music student string quartet.
I will be writing a new vocal work for the marvelous Collide-O-Scope Music thanks to a generous commission from the Koussevitsky Music Foundation in the Library of Congress.
