messis autumnae

GOCA 121 is the University's satellite gallery in downtown Colorado Springs. The space opened in February 2010, and is the product of a great partnership between UCCS and Nor'wood. 121 features work by locally, nationally and internationally renowned professional artists and hosts many of GOCA's signature programs. The award-winning Veronika String Quartet (VSQ) has established itself as an outstanding ensemble since its formation in Moscow in 1989. Known for its versatility and "extraordinary musicianship", the unique sound of the VSQ has led to success in international competitions as well as in concert halls throughout the U.S. and abroad. Along with Beethoven's String Quartet No. 7 in F Major, op.59, no. 1 "Razumovsky" and Anton Webern's early Rondo for String Quartet, this concert will feature Salvatore Sciarrino's stunning Infinito Nero for mezzo-soprano and octet, which sets texts by the late Renaissance mystic Maria Maddalena de' Pazzi.
