Exploring the Metropolis and Bloomingdale School of Music present an evening of new works and arrangements by composer Robert Vuichard, premiered in collaboration with the newly minted Broadway Chamber Players. This is the culminating program of Vuichard's 2013-14 EtM Con Edison Composers’ Residency at Bloomingdale School of Music.
Robert has worked with a roster of artists that includes the Yale Glee Club, Westminster Choir, St. Petersburg String Quartet, NOTUS: Indiana University Contemporary Vocal Ensemble, and playwright Craig Lucas. His music has seen performances in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium and Weill Recital Hall, Cathedral Notre-Dame, the Berliner Dom, and Symphony Space, and Robert’s music is published with both Boosey & Hawkes and GIA Publications.
“. . . [Vuichard’s] treacherously clustered semitones and contrapuntal subtleties became otherworldly, transcendent even.” —The Washington Post
