ICE, Lewis, & Schick in NY Reviewed

Source: I Care If You Listen.

Over the past decade, numerous projects have drawn composer George Lewis, percussionist Steven Schick, and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) into collaboration: the premiere of Lewis’ first opera, Afterword (2015), a portrait album, George Lewis: The Will to Adorn (2017), and a summer program, Ensemble Evolution, at BANFF Centre for the Arts and Creativity. On October 18-19, 2019 at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, the trio assembled to give the New York premiere of Lewis’ recent works that invite critical reflections on movement, place, and collective organization.
