ELISION Ensemble to make UB debut April 23

Published April 18, 2019

UB’s Robert and Carol Morris Center for 21st Century Music will welcome ELISION Ensemble for their first visit to campus.

Formed more than 30 years ago in Australia, ELISION is one of the world’s foremost new music ensembles.

Buffalo audiences will have the opportunity so see them live at 7:30 p.m. April 23 in the Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall, North Campus. The performance is free and open to the public.

The program will consist of recent works from ELISION’S repertoire, including two world premieres.

The next day, the ensemble will conduct a workshop with pieces written for them by UB composition students John Aulich, Roberto Azaretto, Igor Coelho A. S. Marques, and Alex Huddleston.

In addition to their virtuosity, the musicians of ELISION are also known for establishing deep collaborative relationships with some composers, lasting for many years. As such, many composers view ELISION as a fundamental outlet for their own work.
