Last week, the Washington Square Contemporary Music Society gave a commanding premiere performance of Aura, a new concerto for alto saxophone and ensemble. Louis Karchin conducted at the Tenri Cultural Institute in New York. Aura was written for the Serge Koussevitzky Music Foundation in the Library of Congress. Thanks for all involved: an amazing ensemble, and a fabulous soloist, Mary Joy Patchett.
