About CHATTER 20-21
The repertoire has included influential works by Luciano Berio, Arvo Pärt, John Adams, Steve Reich, Christopher Rouse, Olivier Messiaen, Pierre Boulez, George Crumb, and Michael Torke, as well as major works by earlier composers Arnold Schönberg, Dimitri Shostakovich, Samuel Barber, Paul Hindemith and Anton Webern.
We have also been engaged to perform with the New Mexico Ballet and at the New Mexico Composers Forum. Our collaborations include partnering with Hey Mozart! New Mexico in making professional recordings of student works and performing with various other non-profits that contribute to Albuquerque’s enriching quality of life.
In addition to its unique repertoire, Chatter 20-21 contributes to New Mexico’s cultural life by employing the area’s finest professional musicians, whose individual artistry is honored by programming solo works. Chatter 20-21 also has a commitment to young musicians, frequently featuring members of the Albuquerque Youth Symphony in side-by-side performances.
Access is promoted by performing in diverse venues, such as UNM’s Keller Hall, the Outpost Performance Space, the African-American Performing Arts Center, the Kosmos, and the City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center, as well as through affordable ticket prices.
