Alice Jones and Mary Hubbell

Voice and flute duo conText (formerly known as Aurae) consists of Mary Hubbell and Alice Jones, musicians known for their colorful, thoughtful, and sensitive performances.  The ensemble was founded in 2011 at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, where both members are DMA candidates, and their repertoire emphasizes new music while celebrating the entire common practice era.  They have performed at Boston College, Cornelia Street Café, The Firehouse Space, Elebash Recital Hall (Graduate Center), Westbeth Art Gallery, and the Composers’ Voice Series at Jan Hus Church in New York City.  In February, 2014, they presented a lecture-recital on works by Albert Roussel and Eric Nathan at the Stony Brook Graduate Symposium: Music and Nature.  In the 2013-14 season, they premiered works by Gregory W. Brown, Inés Thiebaut, and Eric Nathan.
