Event Description
What Color Is The Dawn?

From composer Jordan Kuspa - 


“What Color Is the Dawn?” is a piece that I have hoped to write for many years.


The words were written by my friend, Klara Wojtkowska, a violinist and author, who spent a year traveling the world on a Watson Fellowship. She sent out travel diaries to a list of friends, and something about her writings during her time in South Africa struck me as both innately musical, and powerfully connective. I immediately asked her permission to set her text. In particular, her recounting of an impromptu meeting of cultures, in which a jazz trio from Norway is joined onstage by an enthusiastic local member of the audience, will form the emotional centerpiece of the cantata as a whole, leading to the climactic idea: "Sometimes I am again convinced that there is nothing in the world as wonderful as music."


Kuspa’s work will be paired with the thrilling West Coast premieres of ‘Clay Jug’ by Edie Hill, ‘The Door’ by Andrew Maxfield, and 'A Farewell' by Elaine Hagenberg.
