About The Performance
PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID cases within the ensemble, Miller Theatre is postponing the Composer Portrait of Suzanne Farrin. The new date will be shared on the event website soon and ticket buyers will receive communication regarding their options.
Winner of the Rome Prize and a Guggenheim Fellow, Suzanne Farrin explores the interior worlds of instruments and the visceral potentialities of sound in her music. This Portrait highlights another facet of her artistic practice, as an accomplished performer of the early electronic music instrument ondes Martenot. International Contemporary Ensemble delves into a program of her atmospheric work, including the world premiere of Their Hearts are Columns and selections from dolce la morte, an opera based on the love poetry of Michelangelo.
For more information about this performance, please visit the event website.
