Assaf Shatil Everyone Became a Trail World Premiere
plus works by Shelley Washington, Yaz Lancaster, and Amy Beth Kirsten
Ninth Planet returns for its third season with a program exploring themes of realism and surrealism, featuring the world premiere of a commissioned work by Bay Area resident Assaf Shatil entitled Everyone Became a Trail. A song cycle for the full ensemble featuring soprano, Everyone Became a Trail is based on poems that Shatil wrote in response to life during the Covid-19 pandemic. This work reflects on the bewilderment, anxiety, and bittersweet beauty experienced during uncertain times of isolation and quarantine. The concert will also feature chamber works by Shelley Washington, Yaz Lancaster, and Amy Beth Kirsten. Please join us for this evening of reflective and innovative artistry as we process together, through music, our experience of the last 18 months. Visit their website for more info about the group.
