Amalgama presents a performance of new commissions from our 2018-19 season project, The Lost Words. A collaboration with author Robert Macfarlane and illustrator Jackie Morris based on their children's book of the same title, "The Lost Words" addresses current environmental concerns, and engages children (and adults!), with creativity and optimism.
This season finale concert features all ten pieces written for The Lost Words project. Through the wonderfully diverse styles of the ten composers, Amalgama engages with the core concepts of The Lost Words project: care, collaboration, and a visceral joy for the natural world.
Works by: Luis Fernando Amaya, Ashkan Behzadi, Taylor Brook, Fjóla Evans, Salina Fisher, Reiko Füting, Eli Greenhoe, Maria Kaoutzani, Tanner Porter, and Barry Sharp
