    Our season and 20×2020 project triumphantly conclude with a commission by the world’s most performed living composer, Pulitzer Prize and two-time Grammy winner Jennifer Higdon. The new string quartet is thematically connected to Higdon’s Grammy-winning opera, Cold Mountain, with a melange of blue grass and Appalachian fiddle styles. Trailblazing pianist Lara Downes joins Apollo for the Southwest premiere of Florence Beatrice Price’s newly discovered Piano Quintet in A Major. Finally, we come full circle and reflect on the the voyage of discovery our commissioning project has granted with the commission that launched 20×2020.
