We are proud to continue our 2022-2023 season with a program of new and recent works written Artist-in-Residence Rick Burkhardt and members of the ensemble on Saturday, November 19th, 2022 at 7:30pm at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music. The works, performed by Wet Ink’s core octet of composer/performer virtuosos, showcase the unique range and versatility of Wet Ink’s musicians.

The program features the world premiere of a new octet by composer and Wet Ink cellist Mariel Roberts, along with two New York premieres— So Many Ways by Alex Mincek, an octet that balances Mincek's characteristic hyper-detailed precision and explosive exuberance with delicate lyricism, and the atmospheric soundscapes of Sam Pluta's quintet Star Taker. The program concludes with Prologue by 2022-23 Artist-In-Residence Rick Burkhardt, a quartet that showcases Burkhardt's flare for theatrical chamber music.
