Dolce Suono Chamber Music Concert Series

1 Dec 2016

Dolce Suono Ensemble, founded by flutist and artistic director Mimi Stillman in 2005, presents highly acclaimed chamber music concerts in Philadelphia and on tour, and engages in educational outreach partnerships with Philadelphia public schools. Its active commissioning program has led to 23 world premieres in seven seasons by eminent composers. In 2011, Dolce Suono Ensemble premiered works by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Steven Stucky and Grammy Award winner Steven Mackey as part of its Center-funded Mahler 100 / Schoenberg 60 project. The project continued in 2012 with the premiere of Shulamit Ran's major new commissioned work Moon Songs, sung by soprano Lucy Shelton.
