Hub New Music: An Evening of Performance and Conversation

Chamber Music
On Your Own Screen!
Wednesday, Oct 7, 2020 at 7:00 PM (ET)

This program, emblematic of Hub New Music’s far-reaching approach, offers a “first look” at a new work commissioned from composer Carlos Simon. Musically inspired by spirituals and liturgical music, Requiem for the Enslaved draws textual inspiration from historical documents detailing the sale of 272 slaves to pay the debts of Georgetown University, where the composer currently serves as Assistant Professor of Music. 

Lafayette College professors Wendy Wilson-Fall and Jeremy Zallen join Simon prior to the performance to discuss the import and impact of his research and music.

The evening also includes excerpts from Robert Honstein's 2017 work Soul House, which builds on the ancient world’s practice of providing the dead with a small dwelling for the afterlife in order to explore memory, reflection, and nostalgia in an extended love letter to Honstein's childhood home.
