Composer to Composer Talk with Tania León and Angélica Negrón

April 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

Free event, registration highly encouraged.

Registrants will receive links to listen to the featured works in advance of the event.

Join on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 4pm CT | 5pm ET for a new Composer to Composer Talk with Tania León (a BandQuest composer) and Angélica Negrón (a friend of ACF) about León’s work Carabalí for orchestra, from 1991, hosted by ACO Artistic Director Derek Bermel.

James Melo writes in the note for the piece, “The title Carabalí refers to a people of West Africa who rebelled against slavery, and whose saga continued through the cimarrones in the Caribbean region. The quiet and introspective character of much of the piece belies something that stirs much more deeply below the surface in preparation for the final outburst, a carnavalesque frenzy that seems to release all the energy accumulated in the previous sections. The trumpets’ calls at the end acquire a heroic and defiant urgency.”

Join for this one-hour conversation, during which the composers will guide us through the music – complete with listening examples.
