THE GREATEST PERSONAL PRIVATION
Join us for the premiere of The Greatest Personal Privation! This work was commissioned by Aural Compass Projects and written by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy K. Smith, who also served as the 22nd Poet Laureate of the United States from 2017 to 2019 and composer Jasmine Barnes.
This piece was originally slated to be on our season last year, but due to various pandemic-related delays, the performance had to be postponed. We are now ready to present The Greatest Personal Privation in April 2023.
Key’mon Murrah, countertenor and Donald Allen Lee III, pianist will join together to bring this collaboration to life.
In addition to this premiere, we will also be presenting another work by Barnes entitled Might Call You Art for soprano and string quartet. Soprano Chabrelle Williams, who gave the world premiere of this piece, will be joined by the Bismuth Quartet. This will be the second performance of this piece.
