Outside Voices

St. John's in the Village, 218 w. 11th street (Waverly Place), New York, NY

In "Outside Voices", the 2nd concert of Ember's 25th-anniversary season, we are asking the question of what voices we choose to hear. Are we able to hear not only human voices – but are we able to listen even more universally to the evolving messages uttered by our planet? Composers Eric Banks and Robert Paterson collaborate in a companion world commission, each producing half of the music for this concert that focuses on the global voice of our planet – its natural cycles, as well as human interaction with those cycles. We extend the question, asking if there is such a thing as an actual right to be heard; also asking, “at what peril do we choose not to listen?” Tickets can be purchased in advance online for $20 at www.emberensemble.org, or at the door for $25. Seniors/students, $15; Ages 18 and under are free of charge. For more information go to www. EmberEnsemble.org or call 888-407-6002 Ext.5.
