TRUMP – A THEATRICAL CONCERTO BY GENE PRITSKER
On election day, Composers Concordance presents a new Theatrical Concerto by Gene Pritsker, written for violinist Philippe Quint, that explores the insanity which has creeped into our political system, causing the most unprecedented election in US history. The solo violinist in this theatrical concerto plays the part of the Devil, who is responsible for all of Trump’s bizarre outbursts. The composition is a new genre that brings traditional violin concerto into the realm of theater.

RECOUNTING | TIM MUNRO
Flutist Tim Munro makes his New York solo debut, combining music, storytelling, and song with dreamy lighting and a bevy of new works.

Through their works, Munro explores the time between sleep and waking, that fertile moment when we remember and tell our tales, before drifting off to dreaming.
