With Dr. Robblee & composer Aaron Jay Kernis.
I love contemporary music and I love chamber ensemble aspect of music, so being part of of the Contemporary Music Ensemble at Northwestern has been a lot of fun for me and I am grateful for the huge amount of experiences and exposure to contemporary music repertoire that this ensemble has enabled me to have (even with 8am rehearsals!). Today, one of the pieces we performed was "Invisible Mosaic II"by Aaron Jay Kernis. I'm not sure how to explain the piece except crazy and badass. It is a very virtuosic piece, both for the ensemble and everyone individually in the ensemble (we began rehearsing this piece before performing the concert prior to tonight's concert). I got to play the piano and celeste part tonight. The director Dr. Timothy Robblee has been very dedicated in putting the ensemble together as usual. I enjoyed learning this challenging piece and performing it with everyone tonight!
