Time: 7:30 P.M.
Place: Meyer Auditorium at the Freer Gallery of Art
Tickets: free but must have ticket, available online

Acclaimed new-music ensemble Continuum, directed by Joel Sachs and Cheryl Seltzer, presents their chamber music discoveries from the lands of Genghis Khan and Tamerlane - rarely heard works by Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky (Uzbekistan), Sansar Sangidorj (Mongolia), and Zarina Mirshakar, Farangis Nurulla-Khoja, and Benjamin Yusupov (Tajikistan). Continuum’s worldwide tours have included four visits to Uzbekistan and five appearances at the annual Roaring Hooves Festival in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. "Simply put," says the New York Times, "no musical organization in New York produces more intellectually enticing or more viscerally satisfying programs than Continuum."
