Run Time: 120 min.

‘PITY THE NATION’
After a two-year hiatus, NakedEye is back with new music exploring personal identity, the
politics of freedom, and sound. The group will premiere three new works. “I Am Waiting”, by
NYC-based composer/pianist Jerome Kitzke, a semi theatrical piece based on poems by
Lawrence Ferlinghetti with guest actor/singer Lisa Karrer; “The Secret of Growth” for
ensemble and video by West Coast-based cellist/composer Theresa Wong; and “Glim” for
piano and synthesizer by Lancaster-based composer/guitarist Rusty Banks. One of America’s
great musical poets, George Crumb, passed away on February 6 this year, and so to
commemorate and celebrate his life, “Eine kleine Mitternacht Musik” (A Little Midnight
Music) – an inspired nod to Thelonious Monk – will be performed by pianist Ju-Ping Song.
