Members from International Contemporary Ensemble return to their ONE residency with two revolutionary events – Collective Reverberations: a free, roaming sound exploration in multiple spaces at the Durham Museum inspired by the history of Omaha's historic Grand Central Station and Cover Motets: a surprising reboot of classic baroque compositions that combines early music specialists from Seattle's Pacific MusicWorks with the new music dexterity of the International Contemporary Ensemble.
