—The New York Times
The vocal ensemble Third Practice presents the North American premiere of Salvatore Sciarrino’s rarely performed 12 Madrigali — 17th-century haiku by the poet Basho that are turned inside out and upside down in the ‘“unreliable mirror” of Sciarrino’s otherworldly music.
Since its founding in 2012, Washington, D.C.-based Third Practice has established itself as a leading voice for contemporary vocal music. Its opening benefit concerts of David Lang’s the little match girl passionraised thousands of dollars to fight homelessness in the local community.
$15 general admission, $10 seniors, $5 students, free for UMBC music majors and music faculty/staff, available online or at the box office one hour prior to the performance.
UMBC is located about 10 minutes south of the Inner Harbor along I-95. For this event, free visitor parking is available in Lot 8, directly adjacent to the Performing Arts and Humanities Building, where Linehan Concert Hall is located.
