Ancia Saxophone Quartet
May 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFREE
This concert will feature the works of living composers who have helped create the musical fabric of the Twin Cities. The program will include Confluence, written for Ancia by Grammy Award-winner and Minnesota resident Libby Larsen; two movements from Short Stories by Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon, which the group commissioned and premiered in Minnesota; and Cordoba, by jazz pianist and Minneapolis-based composer Laura Caviani. Additionally, audiences will hear Dark Waters by Christopher Rutkowski, premiered recently by Ancia in Minneapolis, and two pieces selected by Ancia from the American Composers Forum’s national call for scores for the 2017 Minneapolis ACF Showcase Concert: Robin McLaughlin’s On This Day and Steven Snowden’s Speed Studies.
The concert is free and open to the public. The Rice Street Library is wheel-chair accessible. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
