Eco Muse: Sustainable Music/Poetry/Video

Join us for an inspired, unusual evening of music and ecopoetry with Dino Annex accordionist Katherine V. Matasy, violist Anne Black, and Grub Street’s prize-winning poet Allison Adair. This event harnesses the power of artistic expression to call attention to the environmental and ecological issues affecting us today. You will have a chance to hear a newly commissioned work by Victoria Cheah, collaborating with video artist Pawel Wojtasik. Christopher Trapani, recent recipient of a Rome Prize, contributes a sensitively written work for accordion and live electronics developed at world-renowned computer music center IRCAM in Paris. Poet Allison Adair will curate and read a series of poems for the event, including original poetry that she and other poets have written in response to the theme of the concert.
