Musical Ecologies features compositions that were influenced by or designed from patterns found in the natural world. Each work on the program treats pitch, rhythm, and timbre as organic matter that is then used to “grow” a composition. The programmed works by Jonathan Bailey Holland, Adam Vidiksis, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Jerod Impichchaachaaha Tate, and commissioned composer Ken Steen offer music from around the world that embodies the science, beauty, and wonder of the natural world.
Donations to the Annual Fund are how we keep the lights on, pay our musicians and staff, and spread the word about the incredible new music scene in Philadelphia. Your support helps us do all of the above, while at the same time planning for the future.
