About The Event

Cenk Ergün, born in Istanbul, Turkey, is a composer and improviser whose work has been performed by So Percussion, JACK Quartet, Alarm Will Sound, Yarn/Wire and others at venues in New York, Amsterdam, Zurich and Istanbul. Ergün has participated in the NY Phil Biennial, Lincoln Center Festival, Gaudeamus Music Week, MATA Festival, Bang on a Can Marathon, WNYC’s New Sounds Live, Peak Performances at Montclair University, Stanford Lively Arts and San Francisco Electronic Music Festival. His music is frequently notable for long durations of meditative soundfields in alternate tuning systems, occupying a unique space between concert and sound installation.

This world premiere performance of Ergün’s Formare (scored for female choir, children’s choir, harpsichords, and trombones) features a coming together of several notable musicians and ensembles of northeast Ohio, including members of the Cleveland Chamber Choir (under the direction of Scott MacPherson); the Cleveland Institute of Music Children’s Choir (under Jennifer Call); harpsichordists Peter Bennett, Michael Quinn, and Qin Ying Tan; and trombonists Lee Allen, Evelyn Proffit, Katie Lambert, and Zoe Cutler.

Free; no ticket required.
