    Inversion presents Helios
    Saturday June 3, 2023 concert at 7:30 PM
    Sunday June 4, 2023 concert at 3 PM

    On June 3 and 4, Inversion Ensemble proudly presents Helios, the multimedia work by Timothy C. Takach, with Visual Projections by Candystations. Audience members will have a rare chance to meet Timothy during the pre-concert cocktail hour and composer interview an hour before each concert.

    Positioned at the nexus of science, faith and humanity, Helios spins a narrative of order and chaos, exploring that which is within our control and that which is not and shows that we have the power to change our trajectory. The music provides a constantly changing landscape of textures, soundscapes, vocal techniques and harmonic language. The theme of each planetary movement is inspired by the mythology or science of its namesake and the libretto is a combination of published and commissioned poems from contemporary writers as well as translations of ancient texts.
    Timothy C. Takach is an award-winning composer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In addition to his full-time composing work, he is a professional choral singer and soloist, he is part of the band Nation, he owns Graphite Publishing along with co-founder Jocelyn Hagen, and he is a conductor and clinician.
