NYC-based violist Kallie Ciechomski concludes her West Coast solo tour with an evening of viola works written by composers who are women.
This concert features special guests, the Isaura String Quartet. They will play works by LA composers Morgan Gerstmar, Melinda Rice, and Cassia Streb, as well as Meredith Monk.*

Kallie’s program includes music by Joan Tower, Augusta Read Thomas, and Pauline Oliveros, plus an adaption of a 1,000 year old piece by Hildegard von Bingen. The centerpiece of this concert is a world premiere by Mariel Berger, which is a feminist counterpoint to the male-dominated classical world, and unfolds itself to depict a female orgasm.*
