Group Work VI: Songs Against Violent Leadership

February 24 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10

In the sixth installation of our concert series, we will present five songs/song-cycles that reject authoritarian and violent leadership, including four world premieres. While we have been planning this concert for nearly a year, it has certainly never felt more necessary than now to make anti-authoritarian art.

Performers:

Barbara Porto, soprano
Ariel Jacobs, piano

Pieces:

Try Me, Good King: Last Words of the Wives of Henry VIII by Libby Larsen

and premieres by:

Ivonne Paredes
Gregory Houston
Mavis Pan
Abraham Z. Morrison

Friday, February 24
8PM
Scholes Street Studio
$10 suggested (all proceeds to ACLU)

This concert is part of The Composers Now Festival:
The Composers Now Festival celebrates living composers, the diversity of their voices and the significance of their musical contributions to our society. During the month of February, the Festival brings together dozens of performances presented by venues, ensembles, orchestras, opera companies, dance companies and many other innovative events throughout New York City. Experience the sounds and get to know the creators behind the music. From jazz to indie, from classical to electronic and beyond, join us on a sonic journey through the landscape of the arts of our time. Composers will be in attendance, interacting with audiences. Composers Now is a project partner of The Fund for the City of New York. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Cheswatyr Foundation, the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, ASCAP, BMI, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
