Chamber Music Society of Detroit opening 76th season
BEVERLY HILLS, Mich. (AP) — The Midwest premiere of a piece by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts will be featured in the Chamber Music Society of Detroit’s 76th season opener.
“Home” will be performed Sept. 14 at Seligman Performing Arts Center in Beverly Hills in Oakland County. The new work was co-commissioned by the society.
Puts won the Pulitzer in 2012 for his first opera, “Silent Night: Opera in Two Acts,” which recounts the true story of a spontaneous cease-fire among Scottish, French and Germans during World War I.
