With over 300 commissions to its credit, the groundbreaking PRISM Quartet presents a program of electrifying new works on June 5th at Christ & St. Steven’s Church in NYC and June 6th at the Free Library of Philadelphia, Central Library in the Skyline Room. Admission is free. An RSVP is requred for NYC (save your spot now!). In Philly, just show up!
The program features the world premieres of Mondegreen by Marcos Balter, Corner by Helen Feng, TITLE by Adam Silverman, and city premieres of Pratigraha by Renee Baker, Rogue Flare, Fly Away by Alfredo Cabrera, and Oci oci by Flannery Cunningham.
“PRISM is thrilled to present a free program of world and regional premieres to our fans in Philly as a gift for their ongoing support, especially over the recent and difficult years of the pandemic,” writes Matthew Levy, PRISM’s founding tenor saxophonist. “The composers represent many perspectives, traditions, and ways of creating music that connect us to one another by exploring our shared human experiences. The program covers an expansive range of musical terrain, showcasing PRISM’s ability to move between styles, with composers drawing on everything from Venezuelan Joropo, post-minimalism, free jazz, and more.”
