Description:
For the closing concert of the New Music Miami ISCM Festival 2021, you’ll find some of the latest trends in contemporary classical music that are challenging our perceptions of music.

NY-based sound artist and composer Zosha di Castri makes her festival debut utilizing the impressive technical ability of the acclaimed Amernet String Quartet, FIU’s Artist in Residence Ensemble, for her String Quartet No. 1. Her music has been performed across the globe and extends far beyond purely concert music, including projects with electronics, sound arts, and collaborations that encourage audiences to feel “compelled to return for repeated doses” (The Arts Desk).

The Amernet—violinists Misha Vitenson and Avi Nagin, violist Michael Klotz, and cellist Jason Calloway—will also perform the string quartet of FIU composer Jacob Sudol and guests can expect to hear members of the FIU NODUS Ensemble present works by Zosha di Castri, Alvin Singleton, Caroline Shaw, Paula Matthusen, Mario Lavista, and NMMF Director Orlando Jacinto Garcia.
