35th Concert Season

Diversions

It is often stated that necessity is the mother of invention. The development of this concert program began with the news that our group would need to exist as an all-student ensemble. While this created many challenges in terms of instrumentation, it also forced us to explore the world of chamber music. From the renaissance to the present this program represents several puzzle pieces coming together to create a very unique and wide-ranging sonic experience. Ironically, the final puzzle piece was Varner’s Imagined Diversions. The title seemed to provide the perfect punctuation to this process of making lemonade out of lemons.
