Cascadia Composers explores the scope and nuances of human identity in the 2nd concert of this, our 11th season. With an impressive variety of music that reflects on the many facets of humankinds complex, emotional landscape (including tranquil bliss, desperate anguish, embarrassment, childhood innocence, heartbreaking grief, sweet, warm joy, and spirituality among others), Cascadia Composers offers a prismatic cross-section of new musical ideas and modes of expression from some of the region’s most active and original composers.

Multi-talented mezzo-soprano Lisa Neher (also a Cascadia Composer) stars in performance throughout the evening. Local composers heard from include David Bernstein, Elizabeth Blachly-Dyson, Evan Lewis, Stephen Lewis, Jan Mittelstaedt, Charles Rose, Paul Safar, Dawn Sonntag, Greg Steinke, and Jeff Winslow.
