Courtney Sherman and members of a very small consortium will celebrate new music in a concert that includes miniature masterpieces and standard-length compositions. The ensemble will be featured in January on the Composer’s Voice concert series in New York premiering new works by composers from all over the world and includes a piece composed by ensemble member and UW-Green Bay faculty member Michelle McQuade Dewhirst based on a text by her colleague Rebecca Meacham. In a pre-performance talk, the performers will share their experience preparing this unique collection of music.
