$10

Magnetic South, a collaborative project between the College of Charleston Department of Music and the Charleston Symphony Orchestra (CSO) will present its second contemporary classical music concert to Charleston audiences during the 2017-2018 season. The spring concert will focus on new music from College of Charleston faculty composers: Edward Hart’s song cycle The Caged Bird Sings based on poetry by Paul Laurence Dunbar, and featuring tenor Rodrick Dixon (recent performer for Charleston’s Colour of Music Festival); a new chamber orchestra work, …thought I was awake, by Yiorgos Vassilandonakis that explores the sonification of fluid dream states; and a sextet titled Shelter by Nathan Michel, who is a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist making all kinds of acoustic and electronic music, from pop to experimental and classical. The program will also include a performance of a composition by Kirsten Volness, the winner of the annual Call for Scores administered by the College of Charleston’s Music Department.
