“Dinosaur Annex, with
its high Boston finish,
is just about the most
distinguished concert
series around, with an
unusually high proportion
of new music programs,
much of this being first
performances. I find the
concerts of Dinosaur
Annex in every way
a delight!”

- composer Virgil Thomson

Dinosaur Annex opens its 39th season with a special concert featuring renowned soprano Tony Arnold in the world premiere of Eric Chasalow's "Where it Finds Nothing But the Wind." John von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune writes, “anything sung by soprano Tony Arnold is worth hearing.” Hailed by the New York Times as “a bold and powerful interpreter,” she has gained international acclaim for sparkling and insightful performances of the most daunting contemporary scores.
 
The premiere of "Where it Finds Nothing But the Wind" is sponsored by the Office of the Provost in conjunction with the Dead Sea Scrolls: Life in Ancient Times exhibition hosted by the Museum of Science, with Brandeis University as its educational partner.
