Composer Nat Evans presents a program of recent West Coast music that explores the aesthetics of nature and place. Christopher Roberts will play Last Cicada Singing, his serene, entrancing suite of four pieces for solo qin. Nat Evans presents Still Life with Transmigration, a new work for field recordings, trombones, conch shells, and other natural objects.
