Modern Muses at CIC Miami

Modern Muses at CIC MiamiWednesday, April 12, 8pm-11pm – CIC Miami, 1951 Northwest 7th Avenue, Miami

New World Symphony musicians, led by Hannah Nicholas, play new works by young composers inspired by poems. The concert, hosted by CIC Miami, features musical works by four 21st C. composers: Layale Chaker (Lebanon/Paris), Ljova (Russia/NY), Abby Swidler (Boston) and Sahba Aminikia (Iran/SF), paired with four poems. The fourth work is a joint collaboration with poet Mario Ariza (Dominican Republic/Miami). Poetry weaves together a narrative that explores themes pertaining to exile, home, and love. The music and words connect to a variety of artistic traditions, including folk, improvisation, classical, and contemporary. The concert also includes brand-new visual art from Roseminna Watson (Austin, TX) and Loren Moore (Miami) and features guest artist Brad Whitfield (Alabama Symphony) on clarinet. Parking will be validated. @CIC_Miami @omiamifestival
