Aperture Duo window concert

Craft in America Center
Aperture Duo returns to Craft in America’s Window Concert Series on October 30th for Context, a night of contemporary American chamber music. Sharing the conversations, inspirations, and contexts of each work, Aperture Duo performs echoes of the Louisiana Creole country, sounds of nascent species, and a song about nuclear destruction. Join us for an evening of storytelling through the lens of the violin and viola with works by Augusta Read Thomas, Bonnie Dobson, two recent commissions by LA composers Noah Meites and Kurt Isaacson, and joined by special guest Terry de Castro.
Aperture Duo brings violin and viola chamber music into focus in the Los Angeles area. Violinist Adrianne Pope and violist Linnea Powell met in 2014 while performing in the LA-based modern music collective, wild Up. After discovering a shared alma mater and a mutual hunger for rarely performed chamber music, they began exploring violin and viola repertoire and formed Aperture Duo in early 2015. With programs ranging from Mozart to Deyoe, Aperture Duo aims to curate concert experiences that juxtapose the old and the new, foster musical connections, and jump-start conversations. Committed to exploring new sounds and pushing the limits of the violin and viola, Aperture Duo actively commissions new works to expand the already existing duo repertoire.
