Such a fun program! We had a blast performing the premiere of Eidos II by Jorge Amado, the winner of our first 8SW Composer Competition! Enjoy!

The program also included New York premiere of the beautiful Loki's Lair by Mark Winges. Composed for Eight Strings & a Whistle in 2018, we were honored to give the World Premiere in Sacramnto earlier in November at the Festival of New American Music.
