The harp and guitar; two instruments alike in sound, technique, and timbre yet largely unexplored as a formal ensemble. With the support of the City of Chicago’s DCASE Individual Artist Program, Ben Melsky, harpist, and Jesse Langen, guitarist, are thrilled to commission new works for the duo from Drew Baker, Fred Gifford, Tomás Gueglio, and Kasia Szczech.
