The MusicWorks Collective hopes you can join us for the first concert of Season 20!

For our first performance of the season we are very excited to offer a program featuring three living composers!  This program includes a reprise of 12 Moods, composed by our dear friend Jessie Montgomery and originally commissioned by CMW in 2015 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights movement. Written for 2 string quartets plus double bass, the piece takes inspiration from Langston Hughes’ Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz and as one might expect is beautifully evocative of both jazz music and a wide variety of moods.
