Dear friend of San Diego New Music,
We are excited to announce two events in the month of June. First, NOISE founder and San Diego New Music veteran Lisa Cella returns to San Diego for the soundON Flute Project, a two-day festival of contemporary music for flute. Then just one week later, the workers of San Diego New Music RISE UP in a performance of Louis Andriessen's thrilling Workers' Union at the Carlsbad Music Festival's Village Music Walk.
Join us on June 14 & 15 at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library for the soundON Flute Project. On Friday, June 14, Lisa Cella presents a visionary recital of solo flute repertoire most of which she has commissioned. The composers including San Diego New Music's Christopher Adler and Madelyn Byrne, soundON veteran guest composers Matthew Burtner and Christopher Burns, and San Diego's own Adam Greene.
The Flute Project continues on Saturday, June 15 with a day-long workshop in contemporary performance for flutists, followed by a concert featuring compositions by Steve Reich, Olivier Messiaen, and more! For the workshop, Cella will be joined by SDNM Affiliated Artist Rachel Beetz, Marion Garver Frederickson and Elena Yarritu.
All proceeds from the soundON Flute Project will go to support the annual soundON Festival of Modern Music, that will take place in January, 2014. Don't miss this exciting summer event that continues the soundON tradition of bringing the most cutting-edge chamber repertoire to San Diego!
