Ars Nova Singers “Made Fragile”

Friday, April 1, 2022, 7:30pm

Made Fragile

Join Ars Nova Singers as they present their debut concert on the Antonia Brico Stage with the beloved Fauré Requiem and music by Indian-American composer Reena Esmail, with guest soloists Matthew Dane, viola, and Christina Jennings, flute.

After a difficult winter, Ars Nova Singers welcomes the fragile spring with a program that honors the uncertainty of our shared experiences and the trust we place in one another. We open with sinuous works by Indian-American composer Reena Esmail, riffing on the seemingly unordered yet hauntingly beautiful sounds of traditional Hindustani raga.

Raga (or raag), melodic frameworks in traditional Indian classical music which offer endless improvisation, rely on trust—between musician, listener, and space. They are a framework, not a mandate, much like the quivering faith of Gabriel Fauré’s beloved Requiem. Fauré’s sublime and consoling masterpiece will be presented in the composer’s original form, with a 15-piece professional chamber orchestra.

Tickets: Adults $25; Students $10
