Description

Bard Music West Plays: Games and Revolutions

Games and Revolutions explores the music and inspirations of two incredibly creative composers with Bay Area ties: Danny Clay and Gabriella Smith. Meet the composers and discover some of their many inspirations, including coral reefs, children's games, and Haydn.


The works highlighted on this program playfully explore new perspectives on music-making and invite the audience to join in (sometimes literally!). Both composers will be present at the performance.


Games and Revolutions is the first program of Bard Music West Plays - a brand new series of performances from Bard Music West exploring the music and influences of emerging composers.
