    NPR Contributor Covers Week in the Life of ICE Executive Director; Ensemble Performs on John Adams's "Son of Chamber Symphony"

    John Adams's new album, featuring his Son of Chamber Symphony performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), conducted by Adams, and his String Quartet, performed by the St. Lawrence String Quartet, is out on Nonesuch Records on Tuesday, May 31, one week from today.

    All this week, NPR contributor Lara Pellegrinelli is following ICE's executive director, flautist Claire Chase, as she goes about her exhausting daily schedule as both head of the organization. Pellegrinelli, who describes Chase as "an extraordinary musician," will be live Tweeting throughout it all at twitter.com/iveheardworse #chaseclaire.

    "I wanted to see how she does it all," says Pellegrinelli. "And I figured, what better way than to walk a mile in her shoes? I'll be with Claire from nearly sun up 'til sundown for seven days—or until I collapse from exhaustion, whichever comes first."

    Following the week's events, Pellegrinelli will report on it all in a  piece to air at some time on NPR. In the mean time, to keep track of it all, head to twitter.com/iveheardworse now.

    To pre-order a copy of the ICE performing John Adams's Son of Chamber Symphony, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps of the complete album starting release day.
