New Music Co-op (NMC) is excited to present their first ever concert in a quintessential format: the string orchestra. Smaller chamber ensembles, such as string quartet, are often the "practical" choice for composers. However, if you can rally the forces, there is undeniable power in the dynamic and textural potential of a large group of string players. The co-op has been working tirelessly to bring this crowd of performers together and write pieces that will do justice to the ensemble format.

Long time co-op member Brent Baldwin will conduct the ensemble and will also contribute a piece to the program featuring guest chorus Panoramic Voices. The centerpiece of the program is Arvo Pärt's "Fratres" -- a classic work of late 20th century music minimalism, without the usual trappings of unflagging pulse. Like many of the composer's works, "Fratres" is a sublime and spiritual piece that seems to come from another time.

Tickets are $14 in advance/$16 at the door/$12 student
