Akwi Nji (spoken word artist), Carey Bostian (cello), Miera Kim (violin)

Watch out! We’re opening our 23rd season with one of Iowa’s cutting-edge performers – spoken word artist Akwi Nji. Through three works for violin, cello, and spoken word, we explore love through the stages of life. The title work of the program was commissioned by board member Tom Carroll as a gift to his wife Patrice for their 40th anniversary. Co-written by Red Cedar composer-in-residence Stephen Cohn and guest artist Akwi Nji, Love & Life is a marriage of words and music, taking us on a journey of love. Audiences will also be treated to Conversations by David Ott, and “Long Dance, Slow Revolution,”a poem by Julie Hanson presented with music by Michael Kimber. You won’t want to miss this momentous collaboration!

Special thanks to Artist Sponsor, Schultz Strings.

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue! We’re not sure yet about something blue, but we have the rest of it covered. Founding directors Jan Boland and John Dowdall return as guest artists after a two-year hiatus. Carey Bostian and Miera Kim can’t wait to make music with their mentors and re-present them to so many familiar audiences. Look for old favorites, new favorites, great new arrangements of Dvořák and Bach, and a special appearance by Macavity the Mystery Cat. Hmmm….something blue….may have to be a surprise.
