Join us for the premiere of The Greatest Personal Privation! This work was commissioned by Aural Compass Projects and written by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy K. Smith and composer Jasmine Barnes. This piece was originally slated to be on our season last year, but due to various pandemic related delays, the performance had to be postponed. We are now so excited to be able to present The Greatest Personal Privation on April 15,2023. Key’mon Murrah, countertenor and Donald Lee III, pianist will join together to bring this collaboration to life. In addition to this premiere, you will also experience another work by Barnes entitled Might Call You Art for soprano and string quartet with text by King Weatherspoon. Soprano Chabrelle Williams, who gave the world premiere of this piece, will be joined by Philadelphia’s Bismuth Quartet. This will be the second performance this piece has received. The Bismuth Quartet will also be performing Jessie Montgomery’s Strum for String Quartet. We look forward to sharing this incredible evening with you!
