CKM&A concludes the 2013-2014 season in their artistic home at ADI with an evening featuring two world premieres and a special anniversary reconstruction.

Both of these world premieres will feature original music played live by electric cellist/composer Wytold. Closing the program, Morgan will perform his signature solo The Measure of a Man to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of this work
