Serenata in SITE: Riffs & Digressions ‘Barriers’: Gail Springer and Yi-Heng Yang

Jan 10, 2020 At SITE SANTA FE

This season Serenata of Santa Fe initiates a partnership with SITE Santa Fe, in presenting ‘Riffs & Digressions,’ four Friday evenings devoted to timely music that reflect themes of Bel Canto, Displacement, Barriers and Migration. These concerts are casual, informative, family friendly, and included in our regular Subscription Series.

‘Barriers’  Feel your way through obstacles and impediments to movement with music inspired by Amelia Earhart (1995), the flinty, political and progressive works of Fred Rzewski that offer a space to be angry and reflective, and humanist Eve Beglarian’s idealistic rebellious episodic ‘Landscaping for Privacy’. Also Premieres by Leslie Wildman and Conrad Cummings.
