“I am certain that most composers today would consider today’s music to be rich, not to say
confusing, in its enormous diversity of styles, technical procedures, and systems of esthetics.”
– George Crumb

In this special theatrical evening, Emerald City Music hones in on the music and legacy of
American composer George Crumb (b. 1929). This iconic Pulitzer and GRAMMY-winning
composer is known for his juxtaposition of contrasting musical styles, ranging from music of the
western art-music tradition, to hymns and folk music, to non-Western music.
