    Volti: Paging Through
    On this final concert of its 37th season, Volti will introduce its CAL composer for 2016, Tonia Ko, a Hong Kong-born, Honolulu-raised composer and visual artist whose music has been described by critics as “expansive, meditative,” (Chicago Classical Review). Ms. Ko’s piece is based on Virginia Woolf’s short story Monday and Tuesday, and will be accompanied by the reprise of Kui Dong’s Painted Lights, a work Volti premiered in 2011. Now, as then, the performance will feature guest artists Ensemble from the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir joining Volti in movement and song. The concert will be followed by an Inter-ception—a chance to get to know this exciting young artist. Also on the program are "…is knowing …" by John Muehleisen, "The Paths of Peace" by Eric Banks, and "Quare fremuerunt gentes" by Paolo Longo. For more details, visit volti.org.

    Volti: A Close Correspondence
    Volti’s first concert of the season, A Close Correspondence, will be shared with the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble. Its a natural alliance: Volti (Robert Geary, Artistic Director) joins forces with the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble (Anna Presler, Artistic Director) - instrumentalists renowned for finding provocative and beguiling ways of pairing standard repertoire with new music - for a concert about correspondence. Left Coast will play Leo Janácek's "Intimate Letters" string quartet and Volti will sing "A Fathers Love," the movement from David Lang's "battle hymns" based on a beautiful goodbye letter from civil war soldier Sullivan Ballou. Together our ensembles present world premieres for string quartet + chamber chorus from Onur Türkmen (text from a letter of Goethe) and Mark Winges (text from letters of Abelard and Héloïse, Janácek, and Virginia Woolf.) A letter is meant to be read, connecting the reader with writer. These works, inspired by the dying art of letter writing, are meant to be heard. For more details, visit voltisf.org.
