Tickets & Info Here!

Tyshawn Sorey is a visionary artist who is erasing the lines of musical preconceptions. The 2017 MacArthur Fellow has a wide-ranging creative practice, embracing the roles of composer, conductor, multi-instrumentalist, scholar, and educator. This Portrait features two new works, written for ensembles with which Sorey has close ties.

Claire joins Tyshawn for a reprise of his Density 2036 work “Bertha’s Lair” for flutes and drums, and she joins her longtime collaborative partner Joshua Rubin, clarinetist, for a new duo for flute and contrabass clarinet.
