Composing Inclusion: Jordyn Davis, James Díaz, and Trevor Weston
May 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDTfrom $15
The first orchestral concert of Composing Inclusion — a collaboration between the New York Philharmonic, ACF, and the Juilliard School’s Preparatory Division, made possible with funding from the Sphinx Venture Fund — will take place on May 6 at David Geffen Hall (Lincoln Center). It will feature world premieres by composers Jordyn Davis and James Díaz, and by Juilliard’s Trevor Weston, who serves as their advisor. Sixty students from Juilliard’s Music Advancement Program will perform side-by-side about 30 musicians from the New York Philharmonic, under the baton of Paolo Bortolameolli.
Davis’ As I Am blends elements of jazz and classical music into a piece that tells a story about continuing to get to know and love oneself.
and does the Moon also fall?, by Díaz, is a soundscape for orchestra that brings the composer’s experience with electronics and synthesizers to the orchestral instruments.
Finally, Weston’s Subwaves is a musical response to taking the subway!
