World and West Coast Premieres

Ghost Ensemble is dedicated to new musical perspectives that explore the act of listening. The ensemble’s music creates sonic spaces that shift our attention, perception, and experience of time. Ghost Ensemble’s Arctic Air presents Pauline Oliveros’s whisper-soft large-ensemble work Arctic Air alongside Wilfrido Terrazas’s Ifigenia en, Ben Richter’s Wind People, the West Coast premiere of James Ilgenfritz’s Apophenia V: Outmoded Large Crumbling Oval Lime-Green Midwestern Plastic-Frame Reading Glasses, and the world premiere of a new work by Marguerite Brown. Ghost Ensemble: Arctic Air features Margaret Lancaster, flute; Breana Gilcher, oboe; Ben Richter, accordion; Chris Nappi, percussion; Lucia Stavros, harp; Cassia Streb, viola; Ashley Walters, cello; James Ilgenfritz, Scott Worthington, contrabasses; and Carl Bettendorf, conductor.

Ghost Ensemble embodies the spirit of rugged independence.
