DARCY JAMES ARGUE COMMISSION

We’re very excited to report that the Jerome Composers Commissioning Program has just awarded a grant to Darcy James Argue to write a new large-scale work for us for next season.  It’s to be called The Sleep Room and will be about the very creepy, CIA-funded MK-ULTRA experiments that took place at McGill University in the 1960s.  We’re planning to premiere it in early 2011, and are very excited about the whole project!
