Osvaldo Golijov: Tenebrae
Invoke: Doorway (written by Nick Montopoli)
Jocelyn C. Chambers: Enigma for the Night
Adding banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and voice to the string quartet, Invoke is reinventing classical music. Encompassing traditions from across America, including bluegrass, Appalachian fiddle tunes, jazz, and minimalism, the vibrant ensemble is fueled by its passion for storytelling. Weaving all of these styles together to form a unique contemporary repertoire, Invoke performs original works composed by and for the group.
Described as “...not classical but not, not classical … beautiful, adventurous, American and immediately engaging” by former SiriusXM Classical Producer David Srebnik, Invoke successfully dodges even the most valiant attempts at genre classification.
