Thursday March 7, 7 pm at Morphy Hall, 455 N. Park St., Madison
Ensemble: Périphérie . Artistic director Joseph Dangerfield presents the group’s Carnegie Hall Tour, featuring works by Dubkova, Karchin, Dahn and Dangerfield.
The mission of the newly established Ensemble: Périphérie (based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa)is to promote contemporary music by presenting stimulating and inspiring concerts of new chamber works, by commissioning new works from both emerging and established composers, and by inviting audiences to join us in recognizing great art of our time. Established in 2010 by composers Joseph Dangerfield and Luke Dahn, EP consists of a core group of performing artists in the midwestern region. One of the primary goals of EP is to bring greater exposure to composers and works that are underperformed and neglected—that is, music that lies on the periphery.
