Strange Beasts

November 15, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

Strange Beasts

Birds, the animals that sing, have throughout history captured the imagination of composers. But what other beasts have inspired composers? This concert, with a blend of the old and new, presents beasts regular and strange in a range of styles. In this bizarre bestiary, no holds are barred. Also included is the premiere of a new arrangement commissioned from American composer Paul John Rudoi.
