(le) Poisson Rouge 7:30 pm

We feature the great Metropolis Ensemble with a full evening’s worth of incredible new music! First, our final MATA commission of the season, for the young New York composer, Ryan Carter; then Gaudeamus Prize winner Marko Nikodijevic’s extraordinary Music Box, followed by the brilliant twenty-year old Chilean Remmy Canedo’s Instantaneas 6; and topping it all off — a hip-hopera, The Oracle Hysterical by Brad Balliett and Elliot Cole!
