Chicago Composers Consortium with ~Nois @ Constellation
June 2, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
The Chicago Composers’ Consortium, celebrating its 30th anniversary of presenting concerts of area composers, is delighted to be working in tandem with ~Nois for this concert. Four of our members — Lawrence Axelrod, Martha Horst, Timothy Ernest Johnson, and Elizabeth Start — will have new works on this program. Also on this program is the winner of this year’s call for scores — Jeremy Rapaport Stein’s compelling Lucifer Gorgonzola.
~Nois is a Chicago-based saxophone quartet that defies categorization by working between the boundary of contemporary classical music and experimental improvisation. Founded in 2016 by graduate students at Northwestern University, ~Nois (pronounced “noise”) has quickly emerged as one of the premier young ensembles dedicated to innovative and engaging performances. Known for their “masterclass-level demonstrations of precise articulations and glowing legatos” (I Care if You Listen), “truly innovative musicianship,” and “raw creativity” (Cacophony Magazine), ~Nois has been awarded prizes at prestigious chamber music competitions.
