(2014) viola, saxophonist, percussion, piano, and live processing
Movement directed by Hannah K. Holman
PERSEPHONE is (loosely) based on the spring maiden’s unwitting descent to the throne of the underworld. Straying from the original Greek mythology, our story finds Persephone on a quest. She (like many of us) is searching for something that can only be found by venturing into (and embracing) the unknown.
Kyle Hutchins, tenor and alto saxophone
Jeremy Johnston, percussion
Gabriel Quenneville-Bélair, piano
Maria Ritzenthaler, viola
