Trebaruna The Cedar Commissions Concert
Time & Location
About the Event
The Cedar Commissions is a three day, virtual event showcasing the newly created works of six emerging Minnesotan artists and composers. Each night will feature pre-recorded performances of two different artists, back-to-back, debuting their new music on The Cedar stage and sharing their perspectives on their work and creative process.
Night one features classical composer AJ Isaacson-Zvidzwa as she explores the arc of her triumphant journey with mental illness in a piece for string quartet and soprano.
On night two, Farrington Llewellyn opens up a door for conversations around mental health and trauma including elements of hip-hop and R&B, and Tearra Oso explores historical storytelling and healing through Bomba, a traditional Afro Puerto Rican music style, fused with R&B, hip-hop, and pop.
As night three closes out, Hassan Shahid explores what it means to be a Black Muslim father through soulful, acoustic guitar-driven songwriting, while S U N A H dives into the Hmong language’s relationship with the LGBTQ+ community through hip hop and electronic dance music.
Each person who purchases a ticket will receive access to the 7:30pm CST virtual premiere for that night of the performance and be able to watch and chat simultaneously with other audience members around the world as well as the artists themselves. Those who purchase a ticket prior to or during the premiere of the show will be invited to participate in a virtual after party with the artists shortly after the show finishes airing.
Ticket purchasers will also be able to stream the program for a 48 hour window following the premiere of the performance.
We invite you to purchase tickets and spread the word, to support The Cedar Commissions. Thank you for your continued support.
Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, we are only able to present one of the performances on the first night of Cedar Commissions on Friday, March 5. AJ’s performance will premiere on the original date of Friday, March 5th at 7:30pm, and Bea’s will be postponed to a future date. All original tickets will be honored for Bea’s new date, so please hold on to your tickets.
