The Arapahoe Philharmonic, an orchestra in Littleton, Colorado, will perform the world premiere of splinter by Composer-in-Residence Jack Frerer. The piece features baritone Luke Sutliff and libretto by Xuan Chi Sullivan. Jack describes the composition as aiming to “explore the landscape of Colorado gun violence through the varying perspectives of students, those who have aged beyond the classroom, and a community who love and are loved by students.” Learn more at https://www.arapahoe-phil.org/event/concert-5-apotheosis-of-the-dance/.
