Concerts at the Conforti: AMOC—Away from Home

Saturday, January 28, 2023

3:00 PM–4:45 PM
Michael Conforti Pavilion
The Clark presents Concerts at the Conforti, kicking off with two concerts on January 28.

The American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) performs the afternoon concert, presenting a program on journeying, featuring music composed and arranged by AMOC musicians. Doug Balliett, Emi Ferguson, Jordan Dodson, and Keir GoGwilt create a unique blend of folk, baroque, and classical influences to tell musical stories about journeys across the Camino de Santiago, the Irish Sea, and the continental States. Combining spoken narration, song, and virtuosic instrumental playing, this program tells compelling stories about the dreams, desires, and difficulties that draw us away from home.

On January 28, Concerts at the Conforti offers an afternoon performance of new classical music followed by an evening show of electronic music. Both expertly calibrated for the winter, the concerts overrun the boundaries of categorization and celebrate the act of listening. A ticket for either event admits you to both performances. We hope you'll stay for the electronic landscapes of Greg Davis and the quiet synths of Sea and Cake frontman Sam Prekop at 7 pm!

Tickets are $10, $8 for members, and $7 for students.
