Rising on Now is the Time

from Rodney Rogers: Voices Rising

We rise to inspirations and challenges in the new year on Now is the Time, Sunday, December 30th at 10 pm. Nicholas Vasallo explodes a supernova in Antares Rising, but Robert Xaver Rodriguez's Scrooge is a lightly dramatic take on the Dickens tale. David Del Tredici accompanies his song New Year's Eve, and a single clarinet sings between eerily resonating pianos in Voices Rising of Rodney Rogers, inspired by the ancient chant Iste confessor.

Daniel Sturm revoices, for flute and harp, a Czech tradition of touching nature in Early Rising, and Maggi Payne manipulates the commonest of found sounds into the surprising celebration that is FIZZ.
