PROGRAM 3 – Worlds Apart
In collaboration with San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, we present the world premiere of San Francisco composer Richard Festinger’s Worlds Apart. Festinger brings together the verse of three different poets – Bertolt Brecht, Stephen Crane, and Wendell Berry – for a modern cantata that visits worlds within, without, and apart, uniting the forces of both ensembles as a collective voice.
