Hot on the heels of SOLI Chamber Ensemble's collaboration with the community for a performance of Terry Riley's liberating work "In C" comes another opportunity for you to take the stage at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
How would you like to perform at the new Tobin Center for the Performing Arts? This fall you can, as part of a collaboration between KPAC 88.3 FM and SOLI Chamber Ensemble! SOLI, San Antonio's premier chamber ensemble devoted to music of the 20th and 21st centuries, invites you to be a part of its season opening performances on December 1 at the Tobin Center or December 2 at Trinity University's Ruth Taylor Concert Hall.
San Antonio’s SOLI Chamber Ensemble is about to begin its new season and violinist Ertan Torgul said their selections will include what he calls "classics of today" -- selections of such quality that time will eventually render them classics.
"We’re always very innovative," he said. "We do a lot of multimedia and we do a lot of mixed ensemble things, and brand new pieces of course. Every season features at least four or five brand new works."
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.
