Now based in New York, the modern classical ensemble Contemporaneous was founded in 2010 at Bard College. The group will return to its Mid-Hudson Valley roots to present a program titled “Laws of Nature” on February 12 at the Sanctuary gallery in Murray’s restaurant.

“Laws of Nature” will feature a world premiere by Icelandic-Canadian composer Fjóla Evans, a multimedia work by Australian composer Kate Moore, a piece by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir, and a new arrangement of music from legendary harpist and songwriter Joanna Newsom’s 2006 album, Ys (Drag City).
