SOLI Chamber Ensemble Concert- FUTURE

SOLI launches on a trajectory towards the FUTURE with the music of some of the hottest emerging composers of the coming age. In addition to concerts, SOLI will host open panel discussions and Q & A sessions with these young composers and the public about the future of music, the exciting directions we are headed, and the future esthetics of music as an art form.

SOLI is thrilled to introduce San Antonio audiences to these young, highly sought after American talents and their music as they stand on the brink of huge careers: Caroline Shaw -- the youngest composer to receive the Pulitzer Prize, Scott Ordway, San Antonio's own Niccolo Athens and Yvonne Freckmann, and Matthew Aucoin. SOLI will give the World Premiere of a new work by Aucoin based on his current opera-in-progress that will feature SOLI's favorite dynamic mezzo-soprano, Tynan Davis.

Dallas Opera- Death and the Powers

Science fiction and poignant family drama combine in one of the most stunning, cutting-edge operas of the 21st century, with a libretto by former Poet LaureateRobert Pinsky, coming to the stage of the Winspear Opera House in a production directed by Diane Paulus, designed byAlex McDowell (Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report) and conducted by Nicole Paiement(TDO’s The Lighthouse).

This visually spectacular robot pageant by MIT Media Lab’s Tod Machover tells the story of a terminally ill billionaire, sung byRobert Orth, who downloads his consciousness into “the System” and proceeds to use all his powers to persuade his loved ones to join him there. Without bodies, without the possibility of touch, sex, suffering, and death — are we still genuinely human?

Explore these existential questions and much more in a piece Variety described as “playful, lyrical and…mesmerizing.” Also starring Joélle Harvey as Miranda, Patricia Risley as Evvy, and Hal Cazalet in his Dallas Opera debut as Nicholas.

SOLI Chamber Ensemble Concert- PAST

  • Ruth Taylor Recital Hall, Trinity University (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

SOLI Chamber Ensemble is launching its 20th Anniversary Season with a concert entitled PAST . 

Arguably the 20th Century's most iconic chamber work -- and the inspiration for SOLI's existence --Olivier Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time is the focal point of this program. And the past inspires the future as we pair the Quartet with San Antonio native Robert Xavier Rodríguez' sultry Musica, por un Tiempo. This 2008 SOLI commission was written as a companion piece to Messiaen's masterpiece and is featured on SOLI's upcoming recording (Look for its release Winter 2014!). And to start the season right, SOLI will give the World Premiere of a new celebratory work entitled SOLI Collage by another audience favorite, Paul Moravec. 

 Don't miss the celebration!
