Some lines end too soon. The spiritual crux of this program is Courtney Bryan’s poignant memorial to Sandra Bland and other African-American victims of violence. We’ll pair her music with improvisation, the historical voice of African-American resistance, in Rand Steiger’s Template, in a new orchestra version for trumpet-genius Peter Evans, and a new arrangement by Asher Tobin Chodos of Ornette Coleman’s late be-bop classic. We’ll remember the victims of violence with Fauré’s gentle Requiem.
