In partnership with the Steven R. Gerber Trust and Downtown Music at Grace, The Phoenix Concerts presents the premiere of six Gerber Trust commissions. New works by Kathryn Alexander, Gabriel Bolaños Chamorro, Kyong Mee Choi, Daron Hagen, Libby Larsen, and Paula af Malmborg Ward will be paired in concert with pre-existing works by Steven Gerber. The program centers on three poems - one each on earth, water, and air. Featuring baritone Jorell Williams, mezzo-soprano Re’ut Ben-Ze’ev, and soprano Gilda Lyons with collaborative pianist Mila Henry, each vocalist performs a single poem set by multiple composers on this program of premieres.
