Classical Crossroads will include works that explore the frontiers of early 21st-century classical composition, highlighting the diverse historical and cultural influences that are taking contemporary composers in multiple directions. The featured works draw inspiration from a wide variety of sources including popular culture, cartoons, nature, terrorism and the classical music tradition itself. A newly-commissioned work by Salem-based composer, Tristan Bliss, entitled "Requiem for a Tradition," is both the centerpiece and catalyst for this program.
