Aperio, Music of the Americas

Aperio is an ensemble of local and internationally recognized musicians dedicated to preserving chamber music literature through performances that showcase contemporary composers from the Americas. Through an interactive performance format, the ensemble's programming examines the art music of South and North America, while revealing the mutual impact that each cultural tradition has had on the other. Concert programs are thematically unified to foster greater appreciation and understanding of the national styles that developed in the New World set in their social and political context with an eye towards contemporary artistic trends and movements. The relationship between selected repertoire and other art forms, such as visual arts, literature, dance, and theater is frequently explored. Programming mainly emphasizes the music of composers from South America and the United States, focusing particularly on the cultural contributions drawn from many indigenous and foreign cultures, while featuring the promotion of new works and emerging composers.
