The colorful program features four world premieres of new works commissioned for Alaskan musicians and audiences by CrossSound, Alaska's adventurous new music organization:
"CrossSound Fable" for nine players by moody and atmospheric composer Garrett Fisher from Seattle.

"Nice Work Kid. Don't Come Back." for six players also by Philip Munger.
"Sakalaka" for six players by the magical composer Owen Underhill from Vancouver, British Columbia.
The program also features music by CrossSound veterans Peter Child, CrossSound Artistic Director Stefan Hakenberg, and Cord Meijering, all whom have already enjoyed great success with Southeast audiences. More information at www.CrossSound.com or call 586-9601.
