Requiem for the Enslaved

World Premiere!

Program

Boston’s world-class ensemble Hub New Music are joined by hip-hop artist Marco Pavé, trumpeter Jared Bailey, and the composer on piano for the world premiere of a piece first performed virtually at the Library of Congress. Invoking African American spirituals and the form of a Catholic liturgical mass, Carlos Simon’s concert-length work tells the story of 272 enslaved people sold to pay the debts of Georgetown University, where the composer currently serves as Assistant Professor of Music. 

Requiem for the Enslaved features music by Carlos Simon and text by Marco Pavé.
