New York City-based artists Ayane Kozasa (viola), Isabel Lepanto Gleicher (flute), and Adrienne Kim (piano) bring their innovative and dynamic music-making to this program of contemporary chamber music that explores how artists create message and meaning through the non-verbal art form of instrumental music. These three amazing women performers are very active in the new music scene, having performed and premiered numerous works by living and underrepresented composers with elite music ensembles in New York City. This program features works for flute, viola, and piano composed by Alvin Singleton, Ilari Kaila, Isabel Lepanto Gleicher, and Syracuse University faculty composer Nicolas Scherzinger.  Scherzinger’s work, “Escape the Echo Chamber” is influenced by philosopher C. Thi Nguyen’s recent work on games and gamified systems, particularly social structures that systematically exclude sources of information, for example, when we don’t trust people from the other side, or when we don’t even hear people from the other side.

Music and Message is the popular weekly series from Hendricks Chapel that features musical performances and spoken reflection from diverse religious and spiritual perspectives. These gatherings seek to nurture the soul and ignite the spirit, and we invite all students, faculty, staff and community members for another season of inspiration.

The Ester Drake and John Vincent Malmgren Concert Series is made possible by a generous gift from Syracuse University alumna Ester Malmgren to Hendricks Chapel in 1991. The series offers the Syracuse community the highest quality of arts at no cost. The series typically includes three-to-four concerts each year at Hendricks Chapel, many of which feature the organ, Ester Malmgren’s favorite instrument.
