Composer Zoom Roundtable & Happy Hour Series

April 1, 2020 @ 7:00 pm CDT


ACF member and Rhode Island composer Elliott Miles McKinley is hosting a weekly series for music creators across the country to connect virtually on Zoom. Follow the link below to sign up, and then Elliott will reply with the secure Zoom link.

Elliott shares, “I am a composer, improviser, and teacher and, like most of us, am in a state of imposed isolation as we collectively navigate through this difficult and unexpected moment in time. However, we are fortunate to have tools for communication, such as Zoom and other multi-participant real-time platforms, that just a few years ago were not available. In what started as a kind of get together composition group lesson for a few former and current students, I hatched an idea to engage the wider composer-creator community in an open forum leveraging my access to Zoom for the purpose. It is my hope sessions such as these may offer a chance for people to gather, talk, share ideas and music, and/or just provide a place to share a virtual “drink” together with colleagues as fellow artists. At the moment, this is a little bit of an experiment, and as such, in the interest of allowing more space for discussion and sharing, and to preserve bandwidth, I will try to limit the number of participants for each session. Hence the “first-come, first-serve” RSVP form. If this proves to be popular, I’ll look for more ways to expand. Thank you and stay safe!”
