WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Music pervades our world, yet who are the men and women creating the sounds we hear? Composers Now is a weeklong festival presented collaboratively by organizations citywide offering concerts, performances, lectures, conversations and other activities highlighting the contribution that composers make to the cultural fabric of our lives. This event puts a public face on the vitality, diversity, and innovations that composers bring to the world. The inaugural day of Composers Now takes place at Symphony Space on the stage of the Leonard Nimoy Thalia, beginning at 10 am with a panel discussion led by Laura Kaminsky and Tania León, and press conference. Then from noon to 6 pm, there will be a marathon concert featuring works by emerging and established composers working in a myriad of styles and sensibilities such as John Duffy, Du Yun, George Walker, Fernando Otero, Nkeiru Okoye, Suzanne Farrin, Gabriel Alegria, Tamar Diesendruck, Victor Adan, Mario Diaz de Leon, and more. Performers include Son Sonora and Talea Ensembles; iO and Cassatt Quartets; Diana Solomon Glover accompanied by Christopher Johnson; and guest narrator Isaiah Sheffer, among others. Several world premieres will be included such as a new work by Jovino Santo Neto for two flutes and piano, featuring Santos Neto on piano and flutists Tara Helen O'Connor and Alice H. Jones. The work was commissioned by the Cheswatyr Foundation in support of the inaugural year of Composers Now for its premiere performance at Symphony Space.
