Southern Exposure’s 2015-16 season, “Classical Collaborations,” expands from our traditional four concerts to five. The year bursts at the seams with the energy and eclecticism that characterizes contemporary music today.
Highlights include a path-breaking chamber arrangement of Mahler’s unfinished 10th Symphony, an evening with new music’s leading young soprano, a concert of electro-acoustic music with four world premieres, a show featuring artists that reimagine the concert experience, and a season-ending collaboration with Columbia’s Indie Grits film festival.
Each concert represents a different take on the idea of collaboration: between performers, composers, arrangers, artists, filmmakers, video designers, and even with the audience.
All Southern Exposure concerts are free of charge. All but the final concert are at the USC School of Music Recital Hall, 7:30 p.m.
