Monday 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
This year CUBE celebrates 25 years of keeping Chicago on the cutting edge of composition. The ensemble has presented dozens of contemporary works. This time they look back (sort of) to two sets of songs by Anton Webern. Webern continues to evoke surprise and wonder with audiences, though his works are nearly 100 years old. Dominick Argento makes a cheeky opening with Miss Manners on Music. The evening also features a work by the ensemble’s own Patricia Morehead, plus music by Henry Cowell and David del Tredici. The soprano is Alicia Berneche.
