Like the raven after whom they were named, Corvus brings creativity, skill, wit and magic to the stage. As the resident New Music Ensemble of the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, Corvus is a dynamic chamber ensemble of world-class musicians from across the country. Every summer, in addition to performing outreach concerts in rural communities across interior Alaska, the ensemble presents nine world-premiere compositions in partnership with FSAF’s acclaimed Composing in the Wilderness program, lead by Stephen Lias. As soloists and composers in their own right, each member of Corvus brings their distinct personality and musical history to their concert programs—from classical and pop to jazz, free improvisation, and folk music from across the globe. This year CORVUS is excited to be collaborating with Wild Shore New Music to bring live music to Homer at Bunnell Street Arts Center! For more information on this year’s members, visit www.wildshore.org/artists.
