Hub New Music

When: Sat., Oct. 16, 7:30 p.m. 2021

Scrag Mountain Music opens its fall season in a big way with Hub New Music, a Boston-based string and woodwind quartet that is taking the chamber music world by storm. At Montpelier's Bethany Church and Warren's United Church of Christ, their program includes the world premiere of Vermont composer Evan Premo’s Fire-flowers, a piece invoking the majesty and precarity of nature. Also featured are Eric Nathan’s Missing Words, a section from Carlos Simon’s Requiem for the Enslaved and Christopher Cerrone’s celebration of the poetry of Kenneth Koch, New Addresses. The Montpelier concert is simultaneously livestreamed, and earlier in the week the composers deliver an intimate virtual talk.

Price: Pay what you can.
