This program includes Elastic Band for clarinet, strings, and percussion (orchestra version commissioned by NOW) by Georgetown University music professor Joel Friedman, whose music has been praised by the New Yorker as “beautiful and intelligent”; Rush Hour, for amplified strings, clarinet and drum set by John Mackey; Imagine: Reimagined for clarinet, piano, and strings by Hernandez-Valdez; Soul Garden for viola solo and strings by Derek Bermel; and X Concerto for Clarinet and Strings by Scott McAllister.
