|The Washington Chorus: New Music for a New Age|
The Washington Chorus introduces the music of young American composer, Nico Muhly in this year's New Music for a New Age series. Born in Vermont in 1981, Nico has already built an impressive career collaborating with classical giants like Phillip Glass and John Corigliano, pop stars Björk and Bonnie "Prince" Billy and has written several film scores including the recent success, The Reader. The program includes an array of music written for a capella choir, chamber music for various instrumentation and chorus with a small orchestra which will feature the composer Nico Muhly himself and TWC's Music Director, Julian Wachner, on the piano. The music will be presented along with visual images of famed illustrator and author Maira Kalman's artwork. Maira's book "Principles of Uncertainty", a collection of her illustrated blog for The New York Times, was the source of inspiration for Nico to write a song cycle which will be featured in the program.
