A diverse banquet of new music by New York composers will celebrate the vitality of the chamber choir as a 21st-century musical instrument. Conducted by Artistic Director Kristina Boerger, the 28 voices of Cerddorion will perform The Ears of My Ears, a program which includes three works commissioned by the ensemble for its tenth anniversary last year:

Lisa Bielawa�s Lamentations for a City juxtaposes the biblical text of the Lamentations of Jeremiah�an eye-witness report of the sack of Jerusalem in 587 BCE�with texts gleaned from web-media crisis reports from cities all over the world.

David Lang's again(after ecclesiastes) paraphrases seven verses from Ecclesiastes I and sets them according to a model that captures the endless repetitive cycles of human experience.

Elliot Z. Levine�s joyful, lush harmonies soar in Aguas Puras del Nilo, his setting of a 17th century villancico text by Sor Juana In�s de la Cruz. Considered one of the most brilliant writers in Mexico�s history, Sor Juana boldly insisted on women�s rights to education, before she was ultimately silenced by the Inquisition.

To complement these commissions, the concert program will include two additional pieces by Levine, set to poems by e.e. cummings, and Shiloh, a war-themed work by Jonathan David.

The Ears of my Ears will be performed on Tuesday, February 7 at 8 P.M. at the Oratory Church of St. Boniface (on the Metro Tech campus, at Willoughby and Duffield Streets, Brooklyn) and on Saturday, February 11 at 8 P.M. at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields (487 Hudson Street, south of Christopher Street, Manhattan). General admission: $20. Students/Seniors: $15. For concert information contact: 212-260-1498 or www.cerddorion.net.
