“Tell me everything: music and conversation with Julia Wolfe”

The Contemporary Directions Ensemble in collaboration with the Percussion Ensemble and the University Musical Society will present works by Julia Wolfe, a 2016 MacArthur Fellow and winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize in music. A violin quintet, a saxophone quartet, a drumset quartet, and a work for big mixed ensemble will offer great examples of how Wolfe’s style draws inspiration from folk, classical, and rock genres, bringing a modern sensibility to each while simultaneously tearing down the walls between them. Roshanne Etezady, CDE artistic advisor, composer, and member of the SMTD composition department will lead a conversation with Julia Wolfe to learn about her music and how she sees and lives her compositional process.
