Ensemble Uncaged: Palimpsest – Traces Remain | Andy Kozar and Rachael Elliott, co-directors

Sun October 4 @ 3:00 pm⁠–5:00 pm

Longy’s premiere contemporary music ensemble presents Penelope, a song cycle by composer Sarah Kirkland Snider, with lyrics by playwright Ellen McLaughlin. Inspired by Homer’s epic poem, the Odyssey, Penelope is a meditation on memory, identity, and what it means to come home.Also on the program are three world premieres of new music written for Ensemble Uncaged by Longy composers: Dreamland by Peter Aldins (Longy composition faculty), Smoke by Yuqi Liao (Longy composition student) and Solivagant by Derik Thomas (Longy composition student). A palimpsest refers to a manuscript or paper whose original text has been rubbed off to make room for a new layer of writing. Even after removal, some of the original material may still be visible. After canceling our spring 2020 concerts, we’re offering traces of last season’s programming, in addition to a mosaic of new pieces…hence, Traces Remain.
