In addition, Chatter performs the world premiere of Pierre Jalbert's All is Now, under the baton of David Felberg, on October 9 at SITE Santa Fe with a second performance at Las Puertas in Albuquerque the next day. The composer notes:

"All Is Now reflects upon our current moment in time and the importance of relationships and priorities in life – the importance of “now”. It was written during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, in which the world seemed to be in both a state of upheaval and on pause. The piece moves from hyper-kinetic activity (almost chaotic) to lyrical stasis, with differing tangents in between. It’s a large 24-minute canvas, and was commissioned by Eleanor Eisenmenger for the Chatter ensemble."
