Two-Way Street/ Sarah Hennies

  • University of Chicago 5811 S. Ellis Ave., 4th Fl. Chicago, IL (map)

Composer Sarah Hennies premieres a new work for percussion and cello that examines the care and empathy that emerge when two lives share space. Over 90 minutes, a series of repeating patterns creates a peculiar kind of harmony in which two musicians are rarely “playing together” but are nonetheless intimately bonded. The Knoxville-based duo Two-Way Street (Ashlee Booth and Adam Lion) commissioned Hennies to compose “a very long piece;” for this performance they step into its two intertwining roles.
