Mirror Visions Ensemble Performs At Inaugural Media Performing Arts Series

The Mirror Visions Ensemble will be kicking off the inaugural season of the Media Performing Arts Series with “Flights of Fantasy” on Sept. 28, 2017.

Per the official press release, “The concert chronicles the worlds of the mysterious and magical through pieces about enchanted forests, whispering waters, and the creatures that inhabit them. The program includes works by Sibelius, Schubert, Gershwin, and Schumann, as well as Scales and Tales— an MVE commission by Gilda Lyons that gives a historical account of mythological beasts. ”

The concert will showcase guest soprano Justine Aronson, tenor Scott Murphree, and baritone Jesse Blumberg. The program is set to feature a wide assortment of music from different composers. Here’s a list of the composers that will be showcased: Holst, Wolf, Sibelius, Schumann (both Robert and Clara), Gershwin, Schubert, Ravel, Debussy, Hoiby, Kosma, and Lyons, among many others.

The organization has been around for 26 seasons and has championed the works of new composers, commissioning and performing over 80 works by 28 composers since their inception. Moreover, the ensemble launched its first-ever Young Composers Competition in the 2015-2016 season, with the intent of awarding four commissions to early-career composers.
