Posted By on Fri, Oct 17, 2014 at 2:31 PM

Music on the Edge (MOTE) presents about six concerts every year and is devoted to the performance of contemporary music. The organization just announced its new Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Roger Zahab. The MOTE orchestra is composed of violinists Dawn Posey and Juan Jaramillo, violinist Jennifer Gerhard Mangone, bassist Jeff Mangone and cellist David Russell.

The composer for the orchestra's concert this weekend is Judith Weir, who was recently appointed the first female Master of the Queen’s Music. She is involved in a variety of genres as a librettist; including Icelandic sagas, Chinese Yuan Dynasty drama, and German Romanticism. You can see Zahab conduct her work on Sun., Oct. 19 at 8p.m. at Pitt’s Bellefield Hall Auditorium, on Bellefield Avenue across from Heinz Chapel.
