Mother Falcon

Mother Falcon

Mother Falcon began as a jam session of classically-trained high school cellists and has since blossomed into an indie chamber orchestra of twenty young musicians, creating an intricate soundscape of rock, jazz and hip hop rhythms. The band’s albums have been praised by NPR, and they have collaborated with artists such as Alejandro Escovedo, Amanda Palmer, Tony Trischka, and Ben Sollee. Continually creating new work, Mother Falcon debuted an extract of Stravinsky's “The Rite of Spring” and an orchestral interpretation of Radiohead’s OK Computer. Committed to music education, Mother Falcon conducts a summer songwriting camp for orchestra students. Mother Falcon tours its own music and also tours in collaboration with other artists, as it recently did with cellist Ben Sollee.

Orchestra of New Spain

Orchestra of New Spain

The Orchestra of New Spain is a professional period instrument orchestra/chorus presenting in concert the neglected repertory of the Spanish and New World 17th and 18th centuries, dedicated to the exploration of the Hispanic heritage of which it is a part, and educating the public on the importance of the repertory and its broader cultural implications. From the research of ONS's artistic director to locate the works, through the entire editorial process, the Orchestra brings this music to audiences of all ages in imaginative and compelling concerts, lecture-demonstrations, and educational programs, most recently extending to staged operatic production. Works available for 2016-17 include Christmas/Epiphany repertory and small form baroque works for 8 vocalists and 7-8 instruments: early Spanish opera, zarzuela, tonadillas (secular cantatas) and liturgical works from Bolivia, Cuba, Mexico.
