Ensemble for These Times (E4TT) will start the new year with the next installment of their wildly successful series of contemporary women composers. Sold out last season, their 2021 edition will feature two reprises from the COVID-shortened season: “Matrix” by Bay Area composer Elinor Armer to poetry by Ursula Le Guin and Rella Lossy; and “Rest These Hands” (2014) by Anna Clyne for solo violin. The concert will also include works by Tania León, Jessie Montgomery, Claudia Montero, Marti Epstein, Caroline Shaw, Jennifer Higdon, Missy Mazzoli, Vivian Fung, Anna Clyne, and the remarkable Grażyna Bacewicz.

Musicians: Nanette McGuinness, soprano; Anne Lerner, cello; and season guest pianist Margaret Halbig; and guest violinist Ilana Blumberg.

Virtual pre-concert composer talk at 7:00 p.m. with Elinor Armer and a video introduction by Jessie Montgomery.
