Sound Off x Bass Players for Black Composers: New Works for the New Year
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Sound Off: Music for Bail presents a recorded concert in collaboration with Bass Players for Black Composers, a performing and commissioning organization that "encourages the expansion of solo repertoire for bass and the normalization of works by Black composers through commissioning diverse artists in all stages of their careers, disseminating works, facilitating performances, and producing educational programs." Bassists Kebra-Seyoun Charles, Byron Crenshaw, and Maggie Cox will perform three works for the instrument written under the auspices of BPBC's commissioning program: "[WRECK]oning" by Mason Bynes, "yung perseverent spirit" by Byron Crenshaw, and "everythingfeelsthesame" by Sarian Sankoh. These three pieces will be juxtaposed with two works by composers Florence Price ("Andante moderato" from her String Quartet in G Major) and Akua Dixon ("Efua"), performed by violinists Fanny Fheodoroff, Jay Julio, violist Tess Krope, and cellist Daniel Hass. Between halves, a guest speaker will ruminate on the experiences of imprisonment, particularly upon their family. It is our hope that through the uplifting of community voices and artists' reflections, this new year will see deep and systemic change.
Venue: Broadway Presbyterian Church
