Livewire 9: A Look to the Future - The New Generation
Founded in 2004 by artistic director Richard Scerbo, Inscape Chamber Orchestra is pushing the boundaries of classical music in riveting performances that reach across genres and generations, and transcend the confines of the traditional classical concert experience. For this event, Inscape presents works by some of the most exciting up and coming composers on the scene:
Nathan Lincoln de Cusatis — Oblivion
Hannah Lash — Hush
Gregory Spears — The Bear and the Dove
Dan Visconti — Black Bend
Dan Visconti — Low Country Haze
With its flexible roster and unique brand of programming, this critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated group of high energy master musicians has quickly established itself as one of the premier performing ensembles in the Washington, D.C. region and beyond. Inscape has worked joyously and often with emerging American composers and has a commitment to presenting concerts featuring the music of our time. Since its inception, Inscape has commissioned and premiered over twenty new works. Inscape members regularly perform with the National, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Virginia, Richmond, and Delaware symphonies, the Washington Opera Orchestra, and are members of the premiere Washington service bands. Former Inscape performers are members of orchestras across the United States and abroad. Inscape’s roots can be traced to the University of Maryland School of Music when Scerbo and other music students collaborated at the Clarice Smith Center as the Philharmonia Ensemble.
