Kassia Ensemble premieres Kassia: Postponed due to COVID
January 22 @ 7:00 pm
The Kassia Ensemble commissioned Kassia, the first piece for their entire ensemble of clarinet harp and string quintet. Kassia was inspired by the fascinating 9th-Century abbess, pet and hymnographer, who is the only woman whose music is included in the Eastern Orthodox Church liturgy, and likely the first woman whose music has survived until now.
