“Emerald City Music is the place where art and audience collide” – The Seattle Times

Emerald City Music (ECM) continues its sixth season under the leadership of Artistic Director and violinist Kristin Lee. On Friday, March 25, 2022 at 8pm in Seattle (415 Westlake) and Saturday, March 26, 2022 at 7:30pm in Olympia (Minnaert Center), ECM presents Spotlight: George Crumb, a special homage to the music and legacy of American composer George Crumb (October 24, 1929-February 6, 2022). This iconic Pulitzer and GRAMMY-winning composer is known for his contributions to calligraphic scorewriting. Musically, he juxtaposed contrasting musical styles, ranging from music of the western art-music tradition, to hymns and folk music, to non-Western musics.

The program features JACK Quartet performing Crumb’s 1970 masterwork Black Angels; guitarist Jordan Dodson and percussionist Ji Hye Jung in Mundus Canis from 1998, and Night of the Four Moons from 1969 performed by Charlotte Mundy, soprano; Demarre McGill, alto flute/piccolo; Jordan Dodson, banjo and guitar; Jay Campbell, cello; and Ji Hye Jung, percussion. The evenings will also include the short film Vox Hominis with George Crumb, by Zac Nicholson.
