ASU Kerr – Featured Artists 2019-2020

EVENT POSTPONED, check back for details.
$45 premium, $35 general admission

Hear composers Valerie Coleman on flute, Hannah Lash on harp and Nokuthula Ngwenyama on viola in a fascinating combination of artistic forces. Described as one of the “Top 35 Female Composers in Classical Music” by The Washington Post, University of Miami Frost School of Music professor and Grammy-nominated Imani Winds founder Valerie Coleman brings Tennessee grit and lyricism. Yale professor Hannah Lash’s works have been described by the New York Times as “striking and resourceful…handsomely brooding.” Gramaphone proclaimed Nokuthula Ngwenyama, our evening’s curator, as “providing solidly shaped music of bold, mesmerizing character.” The ensemble will perform their own works, plus a bit of Gubaidulina and Debussy.

 Loosely meaning “mother, those women” in Zulu, umama womama’s spring 2020 launch and performance at ASU Kerr is unmissable!
