A night of engaging performances from the Canadian saxophone quartet Quasar and New York composer Jason Kao Hwang. The Quasar saxophone quartet presents work by Iannis Xenakis, Canadian composers Jean-Francois Laporte (who custom-built wind instruments for Quasar’s performance) and Luc Marcel, and New York’s tireless and innovative violinist/composer Jason Kao Hwang. Hwang’s own group Local Lingo (w/ Sang Won Park, William Parker, Thomas Buckner, Joe McPhee) presents “Voices of Our Own,” featuring the poetry of Lester Afflick, Fay Chiang, Steve Dalachinsky, Patricia Spears Jones and Yuko Otomo.
