Partnering with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, Big Ears will present The Blue Hour, a collaborative song cycle by five contemporary female composers – Rachel Grimes, Angélica Negrón, Shara Nova, Caroline Shaw, and Sarah Kirkland Snider. The work is an evening-length song cycle based on the poem “On Earth” by Carolyn Forché and will have its first full performance since being released on Nonesuch Records with A Far Cry, the Boston-based chamber orchestra.
