“Friends and Family”

Michigan Chamber Players
This "Friends and Family" concert by Michigan Chamber Players, curated by Aleksandra Vojčić, is dedicated to all children without parents. The secret protagonist of the afternoon, the piano, gradually loses its voice over the course of the concert and becomes a percussion instrument, while also emulating the harp and the musical saw. In the Michigan premiere of Crumb's Ancient Voices of Children that closes the program, we witness haunting imagery as parent and child seek one another along with the lost voice of the child. All featured works are rooted in Ann Arbor, and as an uninterrupted musical journey, offer dramatic commentary on people and their families. An entire community of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and larger U-M family has come together to take this journey together.

PROGRAM: Gabriela Lena Frank- Manhattan Serenades; Andrew Bishop- The Archeologist, dedicated to George Crumb Ellen Rowe- Visa Blues; Kristin Kuster- ANDO: Light against Shade; György Ligeti (arr. Jonathan Mashburn)- Entrelacs; George Crumb- Ancient Voices of Children (U-M premiere)
