With Chicago experiencing its coldest April in 130 years, the hope for an eventual warming spring makes Sunday’s Contempo program in Hyde Park even more self-recommending.

The International Contemporary Ensemble returns to Chicago for “Echoes of the Earth,” a program bringing together six distinctive composers of the 20th- and 21st-centuries in an array of works inspired by nature.

On tap are Pauline Oliveros’s Earth Ears, Mario Davidovsky’s Synchronisms No. 3, Harrison Birtwistle’s Some Petals from my Twickenham Herbarium, Toru Takemitsu’s Rain Spell, and George Crumb’s Eleven Echoes of Autumn.

Concert time is 2 p.m. Sunday at the Logan Center for the Arts.
