BOB DYLAN: SELECTED SONGS
LARSEN: SIFTING THROUGH THE RUINS
CRUMB: BLACK ANGELS

An evening of exploring musical responses to war and peace. The terrifying string quartet by George Crumb depicts the brutal violence and political unrest at the height of the Vietnam War while Libby Larsen's Sifting Through the Ruins uses words written in New York City immediately after 9/11. Interwoven throughout the evening are songs of peace by Nobel Laureate, Bob Dylan.
