Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute New Music Readings
Jazz meets the orchestra when composers from the new Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute unveil new works.The Center for Jazz Studies at Columbia University and ACO will present the first-ever Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute Readings.
This innovative program is a new development in the jazz field. While many jazz composers seek to write for the symphony orchestra, opportunities for hands-on experience are few. JCOI aims to provide new resources for both jazz and classical music, promoting the emergence of composers trained in both jazz and new orchestral techniques.
The featured composers are Harris Eisenstadt, Mark Helias, Adam Jenkins, Marianne Trudel, Erica Lindsay, Nicole Mitchell, Rufus Reid, and Jacob Sacks.
Come hear these new works in rehearsal with ACO members. The rehearsal is free and open to all the public, but a ticket reservation is needed.
The Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute New Music Readings is presented in collaboration with The Center for Jazz Studies at Columbia University.
When & Where
American Composers Orchestra
Now in its 38th year, American Composers Orchestra is the only orchestra in the world dedicated to the creation, performance, preservation, and promulgation of music by American composers. ACO makes the creation of new opportunities for American composers and new American orchestral music its central purpose. Through concerts at Carnegie Hall and other venues, recordings, internet and radio broadcasts, educational programs, New Music Readings, and commissions, ACO identifies today’s brightest emerging composers, champions prominent established composers as well as those lesser-known, and increases regional, national, and international awareness of the infinite variety of American orchestral music, reflecting geographic, stylistic, and temporal diversity. ACO also serves as an incubator of ideas, research, and talent, as a catalyst for growth and change among orchestras, and as an advocate for American composers and their music.
