American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) Presented by The Morgan Library & Museum

On Friday, January 27, 2023 at 6:30pm, American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) will be presented by The Morgan Library & Museum.

The concert features three dynamic works that focus on the unique perspective of women from ancient through contemporary times in poetry, writing, and music, including the world premiere of Jensen’s new work, which is tied to the Morgan’s current exhibition, She Who Wrote: Enheduanna and Women of Mesopotamia, ca. 3400-2000 B.C. Concert attendees will have access to the exhibit beginning at 5:30pm the evening of the performance.

Clarice Jensen’s new work for six female voices, string quartet, and electronics, is based on Enheduanna’s The Exaltation of Inanna. The world’s first author known by name, Enheduanna (2300 BC) was the daughter of the first king to build an empire, Sargon. He appointed Enheduanna to the position of high priestess at the most prestigious temple in the ancient city of Ur, where she presided for over forty years, spreading her theological ideas and authoring hymns.

Since 2004, led by cellist and artistic director Clarice Jensen, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) has risen to the highest ranks of American new music through a mix of meticulous musicianship, artistic vision, engaging collaborations, and unwavering standards in every regard.
