Valerie Coleman:Requiem Milonga
Caroline Shaw:By and By
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:Wind Serenade No. 11 in E-flat Major
Post-concert:Join us immediately following the concert for a wine reception in the Blackbox Theater.

Valerie Coleman and Caroline Shaw are two of the great living American composers. Coleman’s Requiem Milonga offers a haunting, mournful vignette, while Shaw’s By and By uses texts and textures from southern Appalachian folk music to create an ecstatic meditation on death and the afterlife. Mozart’s Wind Serenade in E-flat then brings us from death to rebirth, with a solemn fanfare leading to cheerful Minuets, an intimately expressive Adagio, and festive finale.
