Artist Insights

This concert features Homage to Paradise Valley by Jeff Scott, commissioned with support from the Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program. The program opens with our most popular work to date: Splinter, composed by Marc Mellits, which has delighted audiences on its way to becoming an Akropolis trademark. We round out the program with Maktub by Willem Jeths, a gorgeous, mystical highlight from our most recent touring season.
