2006-2007 Report from the Artistic Director

This season, we had 39 performers in 8 venues giving 14 concerts, not counting all of our outreach concerts in the schools, performing the music of 26 composers, including several world premieres. We had twelve composers present at the concerts of their own music. I find it thrilling that great music doesn’t stop with Bach, or Bartok, or really, ever.

I want to take this opportunity to express my deep thanks to our Board, whose enthusiasm for new music is perhaps only rivaled by their love of great food. They are exuberant, caring, patient, wise, fun-loving, dedicated, and … by the way, who brought the salmon?

I am also very grateful to our core ensemble of superb musicians who have been committed to Voices of Change for many seasons. Does anyone in our audience know how hard Roberto Sierra’s music is? Laurie Shulman talks about everything so effortlessly that you probably think the music is easy, too! Our core players take on some of the most challenging music ever written, often for a single performance, and play it magnificently.

It seems right that a new music ensemble should find new ways of doing things every season. We had our first Voices of Change operas. You must have known that I would do opera! We also had a concert with a dancer, a concert with paintings, and a concert for sculpture at the Nasher. And if you’ve never heard Barbara Sudweeks play the er-hu, you have a great pleasure ahead of you.

Five of our visiting composers gave master classes to the SMU, UNT university composition students and also with Booker T. Washington High School students joining in at times. New alliances include WRR, Times Ten Cellars winery, and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, who is our co-sponsor on the Young Composers Project.

As Artistic Director, my goal is for you and I is to be entertained and exhilarated, captivated and challenged.

-Joe Illick, Summer 2007
