1. SOLI Chamber Ensemble: Past
Mon, Oct 14 – Tue, Oct 15

SOLI Chamber Ensemble.

Winner of a 2013 CMA/ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award, SA’s own SOLI Chamber Ensemble (Ertan Torgul, violin; Stephanie Key, clarinet; Carolyn True, piano; and David Mollenauer, cello) prides itself on “giving new voice to 20th- and 21st-century classical contemporary music.” Since 1994, the decidedly unstuffy quartet has commissioned more than 30 new works penned by emerging and established composers including Steven Mackey, Paul Moravec, Ned Rorem, Tim Kramer, David Heuser, Alexandra Garner, and Jack Stamps. SOLI kicks off its 20th anniversary season this week with two performances of Past, a program anchored by Olivier Messiaen’s iconic “Quartet for the End of Time” and also featuring San Antonio native Robert Xavier Rodríguez’ sultry “Musica, por un Tiempo” (commissioned by SOLI in 2008) and the world premiere of Paul Moravec’s short celebratory work “SOLI Collage.” Both performances include insightful pre-concert talks (7pm) with the composers and performers and post-concert receptions. $10-$25, 7:30pm Monday, Gallery Nord, 2009 NW Military Hwy; 7:30pm Tuesday, Ruth Taylor Recital Hall, Trinity University, 1 Trinity, solichamberensemble.com.
