Ypsilanti is the first in this 6 city mid-west tour.
Christina Brier and Kathryn Sloat of Lilac 94 are traveling to the mid-west to share an oddity: two harps, traditionally classical instruments, playing decidedly nontraditional music. All of the pieces they will perform on the concert were written in the last fifteen years, several of them written specifically for Lilac 94.
Last summer Christina and Kate spent two weeks at the Fresh Inc Festival in Wisconsin, where they worked with young composers on new music for their harp duo. One of these new pieces includes “The Juniper Tree” by Rebecca Larkin, which depicts a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. Other pieces that will be featured on the program include a double harp cadenza, dance music for two harps, and a collaboration with Chicago flutist Jenni Shanahan, whom they also met and worked with at the Fresh Inc Festival.
