The 2016-17 Cedar Commissions Night Two
The 2016-17 Cedar Commissions Night Two
The six annual Cedar Commissions on February 3rd & 4th, 2017, features new works by Dameun Strange, Zack Baltich, Krissy Bergmark, Bethany Battafarano, Ritika Ganguly and SEE MORE PERSPECTIVE. The Cedar Commissions (formerly the 416 Commissions) is a flagship program for emerging artists made possible with a grant from the Jerome Foundation, and has showcased new work by more than 30 local emerging composers and musicians since its inception in 2011.
Zack Baltich
Composer/percussionist Zack Baltich is interested in blending the world of experimental music with more familiar sounds. By combining years of playing in rock bands and the study of classical percussion, he often finds this intersection by placing these styles in context with one another. Zack has received commissions from the American Composers Forum, The Cedar Cultural Center, and the Minnesota State Arts Board.

Zach will be joined by bass clarinetist Carley Olson (Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis, BB5 woodwind group) and drummer Reese Kling (Ar. Birn, Jessica Manning, Greyshot) to perform ingress/passage, a piece that weaves in and out of textural and genre exploration to create unique long-form music.
Krissy Bergmark
Krissy Bergmark
Krissy Bergmark: Composer and tabla player Krissy Bergmark will join with dancer and choreographer Lauren Baker to create an intimate, emotional story line through a “compositional conversation.” Bergmark and Baker will exchange excerpts of music and choreography to create a three movement piece for tabla, cello, electric guitar, fiddle, and dancer.
A fresh collaborative work from cellist Eric Silva Brenneman and MC SEE MORE PERSPECTIVE, Flow and the Bow will take two talented and risk-taking artists of color and propel them into a musical science experiment around that rare intersection between hip-hop and classical music. Flipping tradition on its head in both genres, Eric and SEE will explore and test the dynamics between “one cello and a microphone.” Listen for hip-hop’s boom bap heartbeat pulsing classical motifs through a circulatory system that moves a body through mythology, mysticism, and social justice. Catch the slightest whiff of horchata and guaraná along the way as Eric and SEE traverse landscapes of legend, politics, and the human spirit.
