Corrine Byrne & Andy Kozar, Soprano & Trumpet Duo
Performing works by Rob Deemer, Reiko Füting, Paula Matthusen, David Smooke, Scott Wollschleger and Scott Worthington. The Byrne:Kozar:Duo presents historically informed performances of Baroque music for natural trumpet and soprano in addition to commissioning new works for modern trumpet and soprano. They have been said to create 'an arresting symbiosis in their melding of voice and trumpet timbres' (Textura) and that the 'trumpet and voice seem to take on one another's qualities' (Bandcamp Daily). Visit byrnekozarduo.com for more information about the group.
Sunday, October 7 at 3 p.m.
Nick Zoulek’s influence on the fields of modern music and avant-garde performance has added color, energy, and light to the enigmatic world of contemporary saxophone. An artist of “pure mindfulness and talent” (PopMatters), Nick’s craft has taken his Midwestern roots across France, the United Kingdom, Canada, Serbia, India, Italy, Uganda, and the United States. He remains equally engaged in solo performance, multimedia collaboration, improvisation, and commissioning new works. Visit nickzoulek.com for more information about the artist.

presents Time's Illusion
“Time’s Illusion” is a collaborative commissioning project between NakedEye and The National Watch and Clock Museum (the largest specialized museum of horology in the U.S.). Both are based in Pennsylvania. The museum contains not only a plethora of physical time pieces, but an incredible richness in the variety of sounds used to keep time over the centuries. Six composers active on the East Coast new music scene – Stefanie Lubkowski, Florent Ghys, Delaware County Community College professor Richard Belcastro, Monica Pearce, Rusty Banks, and Whitney George – were commissioned to write a work incorporating recorded live sounds from the time machines in the museum. Each one brings something charming, unconventional, and a little bizarre to the experience of story-telling in this evening-length multi-media work. NakedEye premiered “Time’s Illusion” at The National Watch and Clock Museum on June 9, 2018. Visit nakedeyeensemble.com for more information about the ensemble.
