Event Details

Inversion Ensemble will perform in the library at 2 p.m. on October 21 in the library’s popular Live Music at the Library series.

Inversion Ensemble is an Austin choral collective. The ensemble members include composers and singers, and the group was formed “to give voice to innovative choral works and to encourage the creation of new music.”  Much of their music is written especially for Inversion Ensemble by singers in the organization who are also composers. Trevor Shaw is the Artistic Director, and he founded the group two years ago along with Robbie LaBanca and Adrienne Inglis. All three are composers.

At the library, the group will perform pieces by at least six different local composers, including one called The Tree of Life by Trevor Shaw. The text of this piece comes from a sentence taken from Charles Darwin’s classic “The Origin of Species,” published in 1859. Other works that the ensemble will perform in the library set to music text from Psalms, and words written by Hildegard von Bingen (born in 1098), and poets Janine Pommy-Vega and Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
