Through Your Throat: New Music for Flute with Text is a program of new works for the unique instrumentation of solo flute and spoken text. It is presented by Boston-based flutist Leia Slosberg in conjunction with the Simon Fraser University School for the Contemporary Arts and MFA student Ben Wylie.The concert features four pieces by young composers from Boston, Vancouver, and Chicago, commissioned by Slosberg specifically for this unique combination. Alongside these works will be two recent pieces, also written for Slosberg, by Boston based composers Evan Raczynski and Ethan Parcell as well as the seminal flute solo “Sori” by Isang Yun. This will mark the Vancouver premiere for both the flutist and most of the pieces on the program. Slosberg is currently touring this program through Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, and Boston.
