The ensemble, consisting of Lisa Kaplan, Matthew Duvall, Lina Andonovska, Zachary Good, Maiani da Silva, and Laura Metcalf, will share music by some of the most exciting voices in contemporary music including Viet Cuong, Valerie Coleman, Julius Eastman, and Andy Akiho. Violinist, improviser, composer, arts leader, and multimedia artist Curtis Stewart will follow on night two. Among his many accolades, Stewart is the Artistic Director of the American Composers Orchestra. Acclaimed pianist Jenny Lin, named by the Washington Post as “surely one of the most interesting pianists in America right now” will conclude the festival.
