The Encounters Ensemble, led by PEM Composer-in-Residence Matthew Aucoin, invites you to explore the captivating world of art songs. Song Cycle features works by Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Alban Berg and Aucoin that weave worlds out of words and music: a hot summer morning; a dusky countryside; a carousel. Audience members travel through four galleries in the museum, each transformed to reflect the world of a particular composer.
