SOLI Is Surreal For McNay Exhibit
While SOLI Chamber Ensemble typically performs 10 to 12 times a season on their subscription series, this year has allowed audiences to hear them a few more times in special settings. This weekend the modern quartet, recognized in January by ASCAP for their adventurous programming, collaborates with the McNay Art Museum for a program called SO(LI) Surreal, based on their visiting Whitney Art Museum exhibit Real/Surreal.
"We each picked a favorite in this exhibit, and the painting will be projected above the performers," says Ertan Torgul, the Managing/Artistic Director of SOLI. Music by Stravinsky, and Satie are on tap, plus Mezzo Tynan Davis will join the group for songs of Ives and Bowles. "If you heard Love Triangle this year, you heard Tynan, and we are so happy to work with her again!"
