Music on the Edge may be starting the season a bit late this year with the first show set for November 18th, but New York’s critically acclaimed contemporary ensemble, Sequitur, should be worth the wait.

Sequitur got their start in New York City in 1996, and has been setting the bar for new music performances in New York ever since. They aim to speak directly to the audience, literally rather than figuratively, bringing their shows to intimate settings such as cabarets and clubs. Finding their true niche in the playhouse, Sequitur has been combining the media of music and theater, bringing elements of acting and dance into their shows since 1997. They have enjoyed a long association with Miller Theatre, where they have presented portrait concerts of George Crumb, George Rochberg with David Del Tredici, Luciano Berio with Giorgio Battistelli, and György Kurtág.

Sequitur has proven its versatility time and again with such varied projects as cabarets featuring the works of Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler as well as concerts featuring the works of contemporary American composers such as Lee Hyla, Randall Wolf, and Mathew Rosenblum. Sequitur’s goal has always been “to identify new and fascinating music of all styles, from all parts of the world.” -Harold Meltzer, co-director.

Come and join us for Sequitur’s Pittsburgh show at Bellefield Hall Auditorium on Sunday, November 18th at 7 p.m. The program will feature Amy Williams’ Cineshape 5, Mathew Rosenblum’s Maggies, Eric Moe’s Strenuous Pleasures, Variations on a Summer’s Day by Harold Meltzer, and also Ravel’s Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé to add a little romance to the evening.
