Rambunctious: A Festival of American Composers and Dance
This festival contains a total of seven world premieres by choreographer Donald Byrd, each set to a string quartet of an American composer and performed live by Seattle chamber music organization Simple Measures.
The first weekend will include compositions from the early 20th century – including George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, and Vincent Persichetti – and the second weekend will feature contemporary works from Charles Wuorinen, John Zorn, and a world premiere by Don Krishnaswami. Charles Ives’ “Scherzo” will be featured as the festival overture at each performance.
Join us at both venues and see all seven premieres!
Tickets are $25, $20 for students and seniors.
Presented in collaboration with Simple Measures. We’re grateful to the Paul G. Allen Foundation, The Evelyn Sharp Foundation, and The Raisbeck Fund for Live Music for their support of this production.
