Emerald City Music Spotlight: Composer George Crumb

Buy Tickets

“I am certain that most composers today would consider today’s music to be rich, not to say confusing, in its enormous diversity of styles, technical procedures, and systems of esthetics.”

– George Crumb

In this special theatrical evening, Emerald City Music hones in on the music and legacy of American composer George Crumb (b. 1929).This iconic Pulitzer and GRAMMY-winning composer is known for his juxtaposition of contrasting musical styles, ranging from music of the western art-music tradition, to hymns and folk music, to non-Western musics.
