July 11--For the sixth time, Acequia Madre House (which focuses on women's studies and Finnish cultural exchange) is partnering with the Sibelius Academy of Helsinki for a Creative Dialogue workshop. The nine-day event brings together advanced music students from the Sibelius Academy and a handful of American and Canadian schools (including the Juilliard, Eastman, and Mannes conservatories) to concentrate on contemporary scores, guided by a faculty that includes soprano Barbara Hannigan, cellist Anssi Karttunen, and composer Magnus Lindberg. The fruits of their efforts will be revealed to the public in a concert at 1 p.m. on Friday, July 11, at St. Francis Auditorium of the New Mexico Museum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave). The concert will include pieces by Peter Lieberson, Kaija Saariaho, and Harrison Birtwistle, in addition to Lindberg, and is free and open to the public. For information, call 505-983-6538.
