The dynamic chamber ensemble Latitude 49 presents Labyrinths, a musical and visual journey through labyrinths literal and figurative, mythological and contemporary. Through twists and turns, audience and performers will engage with questions of perspective and choice (when you hit a fork in the road, take it, as they say) and of home and homelessness (including the labyrinthine paths that many must take in the pursuit of “home”), finally emerging (or not?) with an heightened perspective on our own personal and social labyrinths. Music comes from a selection of today’s most exciting composers, as well as one timeless predecessor: Joseph Bozich, Jennifer Higdon, Natalie Moller, Virgil Moorefield, Reinaldo Moya, and Olivier Messiaen.
