On December 7 at Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL, 5th Wave Collective Presents Women on War – https://www.facebook.com/events/549862202106390/. Works include Meira’s In Memoriam September 11, 2001, performed by cellist Allie Chambers.
The composer writes, “I wrote these sketches during the days of watching the horror of the attacks of September 11: the collapse of the World Trade Center, the attack on the Pentagon, the plane crash in Pennsylvania…I didn’t have a piece in mind, or consciously set out to write one. But the sketches seemed to belong together, afterwards, and to fit the solo cello. It is my way of holding each other in our loss.” Read her complete notes and hear the piece at https://meirawarshauer.com/works/in-memoriam/.
Also on the program, works by Judith Shatin, Galina Ustvolskaya, Diana Syrse, Lori Laitman and Augusta Read Thomas. Visit 5th Wave at https://www.5thwavecollective.com/.
