I first met Bev, Lisa, Larry, and Ros of the Parthenia viol consort when they performed at the very first Queens New Music Festival, which RAM–the composers’ collective that I founded–produces. RAM and Parthenia will be collaborating on a concert this November that will include my newest work, Aspects of A Singularity. Since RAM began collaborating with Parthenia, we’ve all met as a group and individually with the 4 Parthenia performers to work on understanding and writing for these beautiful instruments that were first used during the Renaissance.
I hope you’ll join us for one of two concerts.
