Eko nova – Sound unbound
In Greek Mythology, Eko (Echo) was a nymph cursed by the goddess Hera to only be able to repeat what others would say. But before this, Eko was a musical creature with a beautiful singing voice and an incredible gift for speaking. A unique voice all her own! What if we could give Eko her voice back?
Eko Nova is a collaboration between the Omaha Chamber Music Society and The KANEKO dedicated to presenting breathtaking new music in a modern space. Eko Nova will introduce Omaha audiences to some of the most innovative and inspiring musical works being written today. Music that looks outward with an openness to a myriad of genres, styles, and forms, music that aspires to excite, energize, and connect. We will present virtuosic performances from the region’s finest musicians, plus guest appearances by extraordinary artists from around the country, all as one-hour events that will appeal to a diverse crowd, from lovers of contemporary art, to classical music fans, to indie band enthusiasts. Eko Nova is great music for the modern soul. Sound Unbound.
Eko Nova is supported by New Music USA. To follow the project as it unfolds, visit the project page.
