XXII New Music Miami Festival: World Premieres with Fonema Consort
March 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Welcome to the seventh New Music Miami Festival (NMMF) concert of the year featuring Fonema Consort’s performance of world premieres by Julio Estrada, Pablo Chin, and Louis Goldfold, in addition to other works by Katherine Balch, Stratis Minakakis, and Irene Quero. This ensemble promotes new music that explores the possibilities of the human voice. They are driven by a fascination with pieces that foster rich interplay of voices and instruments and attempt to close the gap between music-making and drama. The ensemble is highly committed to presenting works by Latin American composers to US audiences and encouraging the cultural exchange between these regions.
The work was commissioned by Siemens Foundation.
Join us for a pre-concert discussion of works at 7:00pm, followed by a performance at 7:30pm. The festival discussions and concerts are free to the public, no ticket required.
