The New Music Chicago Ear Taxi Festival begins on September 29 and runs through October 4, 2021. This massive festival has been in the works for three years and brings to Chicago audiences nearly 100 opportunities to hear music, workshops, and panel discussions about music in the world today.
I'm proud to have been on the Executive team for Ear Taxi Festival and honored to also be a performing artist. On Sunday, October 3, the Wurtz-Berger Duo will perform Intense Heat at Constellation Chicago, at the punk rock time of 9:45 pm. Intense Heat is a concert featuring four works by four different Chicago composer: In Winter, by Larry Axelrod, Love Obsession, by Mischa Zupko, Chambers, by me, Amy Wurtz 😁, and Hot Streak, by Seth Boustead. Both Chambers and Hot Streak, written especially for the Wurtz-Berger Duo, will be receiving their world premieres at this concert.
Not only will there be music, but there will be dance by Mindy Meyers, bespoke lighting design by Holly Durdel, and graphics by Deidre Corrigan. This Intense Heat will be well worth your Sunday evening!
