MAY 2006 EVENTS

May 9, 10, 11

MusicaNoir / Ensemble Noir presents an evening of music. "Orange Clouds" infiltrates the genre of the cantata to explore the concept of precedence: why do we care who was the "first" to do this, the "first" to do that? Inflammatory, incandescent and luminous, these idiosyncratic songs pay tribute to the migrations of several sub-cultural trail-blazers from South Africa, Mexico, Palestine, United States and Canada, folks who put their "firstness" on the front burner. 7:30pm.
