Our season kickoff in the countryside brings us to Longmont’s vibrant Lone Hawk Farm for a virtual salon of resonant works by modern American and English composers and in-depth discussions with guest artists from our forthcoming season. Join us from the comfort of your home as we share exciting announcements about the new season, farm-recorded performances by Ars Nova Singers and special guests Trio Duende (Shannon Pennell, mezzo; MinTze Wu, violin; and Alfredo Muro, guitar), and helpful info about what you can expect from Ars Nova in the coming year.
‘The best laid plans,’ as they say! Please note that this event evolved from our earlier planned Ars Nova Singers Gala (Sept. 11). Given surging rates of COVID-19, we’ll put this Gala fundraising event on the back-burner until we can safely celebrate in-person together. For now, you can still support the work we do by making a donation here or participating in our virtual auction.
