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).

Here, Contemporaneous performs composer Andrew Norman’s Try in 2014:

Contemporaneous will present “Laws of Nature” on February 12 at 7:30pm in the Sanctuary gallery of Murray’s restaurant in Tivoli, New York. For more information, call (845) 757-6003 or visit http://murraystivoli.com/.
