The six members of Urban Nocturnes perform a diverse collection of solo works representing classical music styles from Baroque to Romantic and Contemporary. Each work highlights the distinct sound palette of its chosen instrument. Urban Nocturnes offers this program not only as an opportunity to proudly feature its members individually but as an introspective reflection on the impact of our current culture of physical distancing.
