Opening Concert: Mazumal
Mazumal is a duo committed to innovative music that promotes inclusivity and engages with social issues, such as race, feminism, inequality, and sustainability. Stemming from a shared passion for advocacy and backgrounds in classical music, vocalist Felicia Chen and cellist Olivia J. P. Harris created Mazumal to explore new music that more accurately reflects the diversity of the times and world in which we live. Drawing from their collective experience as minorities in America, Mazumal practices a socially aware approach to programming, through commissions and interpretations of new works, collaborations with people of color, women, and LGBTQIA artists, as well as a bold approach to new music, improvisational styles, and experimental sound art.
Kamratōn premieres On View by Erin Rogers, supported by the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition Commissioning Program.
Of On View, Rogers writes:
"From talk show culture to art exhibitions and academic panels to twitter hashtags, On View abstractly explores a current and complex scenario, where women on stage are unfairly judged and subject to unwarranted critique, while at times leveraging and capitalizing on the spotlight. "
