José González (World Premiere)

Modern-day troubadour González’s poignantly delicate voice, masterfully eloquent classical guitar, achingly emotional melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics will be reframed by new chamber orchestra arrangements by Rob Moose in a world premiere collaboration with yMusic.
