Hear in-progress works before their ACO premieres by four EarShot CoLABoratory Fellows including inti figgis-vizueta, Trevor New, Yvette Janine Jackson, and Mendi & Keith Obadike. The EarShot CoLABoratory Open Workshop features each artist collaborating with ACO musicians to workshop musical ideas and facilitate co-learning, and will engage in ACO’s artistic curation and educational and community-focused programming. Their resulting works will be premiered by ACO over the course of the season. Glenn Alexander II will conduct this CoLABoratory Workshop, and will also be the cover conductor for ACO’s October 20 concert at Carnegie Hall. Attendance is free, but registration is required.
EarShot CoLABoratory Fellowships advance the work of composers whose work is experimental or rooted in musical traditions underrepresented in orchestral repertoire. The program addresses systemic barriers within orchestral commissioning, providing a gateway to the field and a generative environment for composers from diverse musical backgrounds to create definition-expanding work for orchestra.
