Description

ABOUT THE CONCERT
FOUNDER'S DAY
Our 2018 Founder’s Day Concert in honor of Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge features two adventurous new music ensembles who fearlessly explore repertoire for their unique combinations. The TAK Ensemble is a quintet of voice, flute, clarinet, violin and percussion that is always on the lookout for new compositional voices. The Quince Ensemble is a vocal quartet that commissions feverishly; their performance will feature the world premieres of several new works, including a collection of Guthrie-inspired songs. This is music by composers largely new to the Coolidge Auditorium—come celebrate with us!
