Vox Musica has a tradition of presenting inventive concerts to celebrate the yearly anniversary of its inception. Keeping with that tradition, Vox Musica will perform The East, a concert of music inspired by eastern influences, including new music from Persia and Georgia. A composer of works performed by the worlds major choral companies, Minnesotan Abbie Betnis will be featured with a regional premiere of her multi-movement work, From Behind the Caravan: Songs of HÃ¢fez. Also programmed are the world premieres of two new works written especially for Vox Musica, by regional composers, Matthew Grasso and Lua Hightower. With their technically brilliant talas and ragas, The Nada Brahma Music Ensemble, a local classical Indian fusion group will accompany Vox Musica and set the tone for this program.
