By Logan Martell

October 1, 2020, will see the digital world premiere of “Coming Together,” co-presented by Five Boroughs Music Festival, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Tippet Rise Art Center, and Bay Chamber Concerts. Countertenor Reginald Mobley will be joined by artists from the Quodlibet Ensemble.

This concert seeks to raise awareness for voter’s rights, and features music by Rzewski, Florence Price, and Bach, along with text by Samuel Melville.

“Coming Together” was conceived by Quodlibet Artistic Director Katie Hyun, and filmed by Pastor Isaac Scott, an award-winning multimedia artist and human rights activist with the Center for Institutional and Social Change at Columbia Law School.

The project is free to watch, and comes in partnership with VOTESart, a non-partisan organization which uses music to promote voter registration and civic engagement.

Mobley has performed with such organizations as the Academy of Ancient Music, Agave Baroque, Bach Collegium San Diego, Calgary Symphony, Monteverdi Choir & English Baroque Soloists, Pacific Music Works, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, TENET, among many others; he was also the first Black person to lead The Handel + Haydn Society in its bicentennial year.
