Composers Now presents

2022 Composers Now Festival Opening Event

Hosted by Founding Artistic Director Tania León, the January 27 event kicks off the 12th annual month-long festival with a diverse program and the annual Composers Now Visionary Award - presented, this year, to David Del Tredici and Mary D. Watkins. Given annually at the opening event of the festival, the award recognizes members of the arts community who, through their own creative practice and advocacy for others, have made a profound, positive and lasting impact in our culture.

The evening also celebrates Ebun Oguntola with the organization's First Commission Award and the world premiere of her new work for the New Thread Quartet under the mentorship of Erin Rogers. The First Commission Award providing pre-college composers with support aimed to encourage artistic potential and creative development. Composers, selected by a jury, receive a Composers Now commission and a world premiere.

The program continues with the performance of a new work by composer Seong Ae Kim and visual artist Andre Veloux created during their December 2021 Composers Now Composers Creative Residency, co-produced with the Pocantico Center of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

The evening also includes a 2021 Rohan Chander work performed by pianist Vicky Chow, a performance by Joy Guidry, and composer/trumpeter Jonathan Saraga.

A URL to the event will be emailed to you on the day of the event. You can also access the stream from the event page on Eventbrite.

Composers Now empowers all living composers, celebrates the diversity of their voices and honors the significance of their artistic contributions to the cultural fabric of society.
