The Pro Musica Concert Series--in its sixth season--celebrating the works of living composers-- will present a concert entitled “Out of Darkness into Light”, a new work by composer William Neil (http://williamneil.net). Premiering this arrangement of the work is the Pro Musica Ensemble: Nancy King (soprano), Danijela Žeželj-Gualdi (violin), Helena Spencer (contrabassoon), Laurent Estoppey (saxophones) and Robert Nathanson (guitar). “Out of Darkness into Light” is really a mystery play interpreting, through composed and improvisational music, the beautiful prayer-like text that Malgosia Sawczuk created after her remarkable restoration work in the St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Chicago.


Mr. Neil will play four short solo pieces as part of the evening. His music has been performed on both sides of the Atlantic and has been featured at the Festival of Music in Evian, France, the Electronic Plus Festival in New York, the Pontino Festival in Italy, and the New Music Chicago Festival. Co-sponsored by the UNCW Department of Music.

Glass artist Shannon Brunskill (www.shannonbrunskill.com) discusses her work currently on view in CAM's exhibition From the Fire, inspiration and process in this overview of her career. "Although these works begin based on my personal experiences, I attempt to create pieces that communicate emotions that are a part of the human experience. I hope that viewers can feel the essence of the pieces, and in turn the moments that they are derived from." Purchase seats on CAM's website, by phone and at CAM's Visitor Services desk. From the Fire is on view through August 27, 2017.
