On Sunday, September 16, we had the pleasure of playing at Cedille Records’ Annual Soirée. Alongside performances by Civitas Ensemble and Patrice Michaels, we played excerpts of David Lang’s composition as explanation, a new work we’ll be recording with Cedille. The evening was a spectacular success for Cedille, thanks in big part to a total of $55,000 raised for our recording of composition as explanation. The night was made even greater by an appearance by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We were thrilled to be in her presence, and we even got a photo with her! A big thanks to everyone involved for having us!
composition as explanation was commissioned by The Arts Club of Chicago on the occasion of its centennial.
