WORLD PREMIERE

New Work (2019) for Saxophone Quartet

Chicago, IL, USA

8:30 pm, Hairpin Arts Center (2810 N Milwaukee Ave)

~NOIS Saxophone Quartet

"~NOIS saxophone quartet premieres new works by UChicago composers connecting music and performance to the design and architecture traditions of Chicago. By creatively staging the multiple works throughout the Hairpin Arts Center gallery in the historic Morris B. Sachs building at Logan Square, the composers and musicians engage with physical space and architecture as a compositional parameter. Commissioned lighting design accentuates the space and sonic qualities of the music, both of which lead the audience through a continuously flowing, immersive aesthetic experience."
