Empire City Men's Chorus friends C4 (The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective) will present 1 on 1 – Music for Solo Instruments and Choir tonight at 8:00pm at The Church of St. Luke in the Fields in Greenwich Village in Manhattan. The series will feature choir accompanied by one choral instrument – from the familiar clarinet or English horn, to the reverberations of the vibraphone, and the otherworldly theremin. The concert program will include
Lisa Bielawa, Lamentations for a City
Christopher Marshall Tihei, Mauri Ora! (selections)
Bettina Sheppard, The Day the Saucers Came (on text of Neil Gaiman)
A work by Andrea Clearfield
World premieres by C4 Composers: Timothy Brown, Bill Heigen, and Lisa Whitson Burns
Tickets are available on C4's website at www.c4ensemble.org.
C4 is unique, award winning chorus that is directed and operated collectively by its singing members, functioning not only as a presenting ensemble in its own right but also as an ongoing workshop and recital chorus for the emerging composers and conductors who form the core of the group. C4 is the first organization of its kind and one of the few choral groups in the nation to focus exclusively on the music of our time, performing only music written in the last twenty-five years.
