In At the Site of Jonah's Burial for bass voice and piano by Gilbert Galindo, simple chords reminiscent of pop ballads and melancholic vocal lines with a bit of modernist drama give this new poem found in the book We Are In Danger of Drowning by Loren Moreno, a musical life. The poem, written in response to the ISIS bombing of the burial site of the prophet Jonah is full of conflicting emotion, which Galindo sets to capture in music. The remaining program of the concert includes:

Seth Boustead's Momentary Moments for cello and piano 
Claude Debussy's Sonate for cello and piano
Gabriela Lena Frank & David Fetherolf's Serenata for cello*
Kamala Sankaram's Call Out for bass voice, cello, & piano*

(*World premiere)

Kate Dillingham, cello
Susan Svrcek, piano 
Matthew Curran, bass vocalist
