Thu. December 9, 2021 | 7:30PM


No Food or Drink


Originally scheduled for May 6, 2021 in the Mansion.

Led by cellist and artistic director Clarice Jensen, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) has risen to the highest ranks of American new music through a mix of meticulous musicianship, artistic vision, and engaging collaborations. NPR calls them “contemporary music dynamos,” and Strings Magazine reports, “ACME’s absorbing playing pulsed with warm energy. . . Shared glances and inhales triggered transitions in a flow so seamless it seemed learned in a Jedi temple.”

ACME performs a program that includes Gavin Bryars’ The Sinking of the Titanic, Chukwa by Qasim Naqvi, and Jensen’s For this from that will be filled (b).
