Four works, brought to life over the previous nine-week workshop cycle, receive world premieres from the CCCC’s Grossman Ensemble — “some of the best contemporary players in the city” (Chicago Reader). Composers Gregory Beyer, Sean Shepherd, Melinda Wagner, and Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon offer a program of contemporary music featuring an array of sonic landscapes, rhythmic complexity, and colorful expression, led by returning conductor David Dzubay. An after-party with the artists completes the evening.

The music community of Chicago has lost one of its brightest lights, Cliff Colnot (1947–2024). We mourn him and hope to continue his tireless, generous advocacy of music of all kinds. Selflessly dedicated to his students and colleagues, Cliff exuded creativity, musical precision, adventure, and seriousness of purpose. We dedicate this concert to his memory.

Tickets: $20, students free with ID

Presented as part of the UChicago Presents 2023/24 concert season.
