Orchestra World Premieres: Virtual Concert

Thursday, May 27, 2021 7:00pm

Add to calendar

NC State’s orchestras — the Raleigh Civic Symphony and Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra — will premiere new works by composers Milad Yousufi, Nahre Sol and Trevor New. The virtual concert will include introductions from the composers and remotely recorded performances by the orchestras. Peter Askim directs the orchestras.

Yousufi also is a talented painter and his haunting images of his homeland will accompany the music in this world premiere recording of the orchestral version of his music.  

The orchestras commissioned New and Sol to create new music during the pandemic. New’s music combines solo viola and electronic audio processing with live musicians, and Sol’s composition interweaves orchestral textures with newly-created video animations to create a unique audio-visual experience. 

You can view the concert on YouTube Premieres. The Department of Music will post a link to view the concert on its website.
