Ben Bolter, conductor; Jason Gluck, assistant conductor; Rena Maduro, mezzo-soprano 

The ensemble’s second winter-quarter performance features Israeli composer Yotam Haber’s Estro Poetico-armonico III for mezzo-soprano and ensemble, inspired by recordings from the 1950s and ‘60s of liturgical traditions, stemming back centuries, from Jewish communities in Italy. The composer pairs portions of these recordings with poetry addressing the realities of modern life in Israel, while simultaneously grappling with its history. Also on the program is Stacy Garrop’s Frammenti—in the composer’s words, “a set of five miniatures in which each movement is based on one or more musical fragments"—and the world premiere of Bienen student composer Jonah Keoun’s Asphyxiation

Jonah Keoun, Asphyxiation (world premiere) 
Yotam Haber, Estro Poetico-armonico III (Chicago premiere)
Stacy Garrop, Frammenti (Fragments)
