“The River” with ETHEL & Robert Mirabal

An immersion in a flow of music, narrative and ritual that evokes timeless Native American traditions through contemporary musical artistry.

“The River” is an ideal project to bring to our community which will be held during Native American History Month, since it will introduce them to new music composed by Robert Mirabal and members of ETHEL. Mr. Mirabal is a multi-Grammy winning Native American flutist, while ETHEL is a string quartet known for exploring new ideas and adventurous music.  The music for “The River” was composed and recorded in 2016 in Taos, NM.  The live performance will include a moving narration as well as the music. The program will be a new creative endeavor for BFAS, which we believe will be well received by our concert audiences.  Since the majority of our programming is classical in nature, this program will offer a departure as well as an education to our audiences, who may not be familiar with Native American music.
