Robert Sirota’s Bridging the Gap I
Dec 4, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$29 - $34
Bridging the Gap is a series of concerts created by National Sawdust Curator Robert Sirota to explore the student/teacher, mentor/mentee relationships between generations of composers.
The first concert features composers from the Manhattan School of Music, pairing Richard Danielpour (teacher) with Paolo Marchettini (student), Marjorie Merryman (teacher) with Yunzhuo Gan (student). The works will be performed by the contemporary ensemble TACTUS from the Manhattan School of Music, called “Ambitious … finely polished … spirited” by The New York Times.
A pre-concert discussion, moderated by composer and Creative Director of National Sawdust Paola Prestini, will be held at 3:15pm.
