“I am certain that most composers today would consider today’s music to be rich, not to say confusing, in its enormous diversity of styles, technical procedures, and systems of esthetics.”

– George Crumb

In this special theatrical evening, Emerald City Music hones in on the music and legacy of American composer George Crumb (b. 1929). This iconic Pulitzer and GRAMMY-winning composer is known for his juxtaposition of contrasting musical styles, ranging from music of the western art-music tradition, to hymns and folk music, to non-Western music. 

Program includes a screening of Vox Hominis, a short film about Mr. Crumb by filmmaker Zac Nicholson.
