GNE concludes the 2018-19 season of its residency at Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ with the final program in a series called the Four Freedoms, based on Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “Four Essential Freedoms,” articulated in his 1941 State of the Union speech supporting our allies in Europe ahead of World War II. This program is commenting on the freedom from fear.

The program includes Martin Bresnick‘s Be Just!, Alex Temple‘s Switch, Dana Kaufman‘s Peaporutus (“Concussion”), Nebal Maysaud‘s Electronic BattleshipArmando Bayolo‘s Last Breaths, and Julius Eastman‘s Stay On It.

The performance will feature Meaghan Burke, vocalist for the Temple, and Andrew Sauvageau, baritone for the Bayolo.
