New Music Salon:
What does "Contemporary Music" mean, anyway?
Friday July 13, 2007, 8:00 PM, $10
At The Patricia M. Sitar Center for the Arts,
1700 Kalorama Road, NW Suite 101
The American Composers Forum presents a "New Music Salon" featuring a wide variety of composers and performers. Perhaps the only thing they have in common is that the music is new. Like, really new.
The program will include:
Stephen Lilly's post-modern "Portrait in Song: A Song Cycle for Soprano and Piano"
Michael Boyd's aleatoric trio, "Hand Leg Suit"
Leeds Barroll's "Chamber-piece for Unaccompanied Cello"
and Catherine McMichael's "Dog Chronicles" for soprano, clarinet, flute, and piano.
This eclectic mix of music promises to be anything but predictable.
The New Music Salon series creates a space for composers, performers, and audiences to meet, share new work, and build connections. Meet the composers in our midst and find out where music is heading tomorrow. Stay for post-show refreshments and meet the movers and shakers in DC's new music scene.
ACF-DC has been sponsoring composer residencies with community groups and presenting new music in DC since 1997, and is always looking for new ways to break down barriers between artists, new music, and audiences.
The Patricia M. Sitar Center for the Arts provides after-school arts education in music, dance, drama, creative writing, and visual arts to low-income youth in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
