Mivos Quartet returns to Constellation with special guest soprano KATE SOPER.

This New York-based string quartet presents an epic program featuring soprano Kate Soper performing her piece Nadja for string quartet & soprano. Also on the program: an acoustic version of being time - a new large-scale composition by Eric Wubbels, one of the NYC Avant-garde’s leading lights. This piece pushes the string quartet across a new frontier of timbral-fusion, extended just intonation, psychoacoustic phenomena, and emotional resonance.

The commission of Eric Wubbels's "being time" has been made possible by the Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program, with generous funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Chamber Music America Endowment Fund.
