Featuring Nathan Mandel, Chad Wahls, and special guest performances by Eli Fieldsteel and Guido Sanchez Portuguez
The Sousa Archives and Center for American Music present Revolutionary Musical Exchanges to celebrate American Music Month. Join Nathan Mandel for a modern pop-art electronic performance with saxophone music by some of Illinois’ leading contemporary composers including Philipp Blume, Sean Harold, John Nichols, and Scott Wyatt. The performance will include To Watch Over Me, There is no Image, There is no Poetry, and Fall Silent, which were written exclusively for and premiered by Mandel. Other pieces include Scott Wyatt’s Counterpoints, which was recently updated for modern performances by Mandel and Wahls, and Gregory Wanamaker’s Three Episodes. The concert will also include a world premiere of a new musical work composed for Mandel by Eli Fieldsteel. Come join us for this exciting performance!
This performance will last approximately one hour and 15 minutes with no intermission.
