Literary Music Series - 11/6/20

– If you missed it, watch our archieved stream here. –

Our Time Wind Quintet is thrilled to perform on Natalie Vargas Nedvetsky’s Literary Music Series! Please join us for this livestream event on November 6, 2020, as we present our recordings of quintet works by Gyorgy Ligeti, Carl Nielsen, and Valerie Coleman. Joined by award-winning fictional author and poet Patricia McCrystal, we will explore themes of isolation and unity, rediscovery and reinvention, and creativity within confinement through the music in the program.

There will be a post-performance Zoom Salon following the program in which the audience can interact with the musicians. Please join us as we discuss the process of collaborating and recording remotely, and much more.
