Event Information

Rick Burkhardt’s Passovercommissioned for thingNY, is a performance-ritual for six singing/speaking instrumentalists seated at a dinner table on which there lies a double bass. Each performer relates the story of a friend’s escape: from a bad marriage, from an unfair situation at work, from a run-in with a traffic cop, from an ethically compromising opportunity, from an awkward family dinner. Ultimately, it becomes clear that all of these friends form one collective identity. This commission has been made possible by the Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program, with generous funding provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Chamber Music America Endowment Fund. 

Presented by Sonic Circuits

Also on the program:
The Witches (Louna Dekker-Vargas and Ledha Finck: flute, violin and vocals)

This event is supported by a grant from New Music USA.
