Event Details

Ensemble Signal

The season will conclude with a string orchestra performance by Ensemble Signal, led by conductor Brad Lubman. The program will highlight Bang on a Can cofounder Michael Gordon’s Weather, a wild, explosive work that began with his curiosity about how musical instruments might be useful in mapping chaotic weather patterns. Ensemble Signal will also perform MacArthur Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe’s Cruel Sister, a tour de force of story telling in which the music dramatizes the story behind a harrowing and heartbreaking traditional folk song.

A concert talk with David Lang, Artist-in-Residence, and the performers will follow the performance.

The concert, which is supported by a grant from the PNC Foundation, is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required. Please note that performances are not suitable for children under the age of eight.
