SoundLAB, a contemporary music ensemble led by Music Director Robert Whalen and Artistic Director Katherine Skovira, performs curated programs that advocate for the work of living composers and the voices of contemporary musicians. SoundLAB debuts with the Philadelphia Orchestra’s Barnes-Stokowski Festival this October 15-18, 2018, with four days of events and concerts. These curated programs will extend the musical influences of Barnes and Stokowski into the present day with notable U.S. and Philadelphia premieres of works by living composers. SoundLAB’s two concerts (October 16 and 18) feature the JACK Quartet as guest artists and Augusta Read Thomas as Composer-in-Residence alongside contemporary musicians from around the world.
Just as Barnes and Stokowski supported the growth of innovative art in Philadelphia, SoundLAB’s two chamber concerts of contemporary repertoire will serve as a laboratory for new music in Philadelphia, on October 16 at the American Philosophical Society and on October 18 at the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral.
