Synergy Initiative 2021: The American Perspectives Series & Grand Duos
As part of this year’s Synergy Initiative, we explore what makes something sound distinctly American, and how the American sound, much like America itself, draws on a mosaic of influences and, in turn, inspires others. From folk songs, gospel choirs, and jazz classics to vast aural landscapes and iconic cinematic scores, the American Perspectives series is a captivating chronicle of musical America. The initiative closes with Grand Duos, which features a genre-bending world première by trailblazing Israeli-American composer Tamar Muskal: a concerto for percussionist Steven Schick, chamber ensemble, and computer-animated wooden mirror by artist Daniel Rozin.
For fans of new music
This season features works by some of the most exciting composers writing today, including our very first chamber opera, A Song By Mahler by Marc Neikrug. We’re also thrilled to welcome Gabriela Lena Frank, who was was included in the Washington Post’s list of the 35 most significant women composers in history, as our composer in residence and guest curator.
