C4 's winter 2013 concert, Uncaged In the Here and Now continues the group's Release the Future season with music that either comes into being before the audience's eyes or that speaks to the present moment. Featured works are The Caged Skylark by veteran composer and C4 member Hayes Biggs, The Un-Covered Wagon by Brent Michael Davids, an excerpt from Steven Stucky's in memoriam Thomas Tallis, and Toby Twining's Hee oo oom ha in a revised version created specifically for C4. Premieres include Christian Carey's My kiss is a journey and - from C4 members - Pitter patter, pitter patter; and then by Daniel Andor-Ardo, Torch Song by Timothy Brown, Seven Line Supplication to Guru Rinpoche by Harry Einhorn & Philippe Treuille, and Eu Sou Que Eu Sou by Fahad Siadat. Also on the program will be Jocelyn Hagen's Laus Trinitati, Huang Ruo's Without Words, and Love is Anterior to Life by C4's Bettina Sheppard. In Uncaged, C4 continues to propel listeners toward tomorrow through the musical innovation and collective creativity that is uniquely C4.
C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective is the new-music chorus for New York, serving audiences, singers, composers, and conductors with performances of music written in the last 25 years. A collective, C4 nurtures its own members as well as musicians outside the group with concerts, workshops, and competitions. The diversity of its membership leads to new projects and new repertoire, enriching the arts culture of New York with the unique sounds of the choral music being created in the here and now.
