Chicago Composers: the Next Generation

Tuesday, December 17, 2024 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

“Chicago Composers: the Next Generation” celebrates the work of composers in the Crossing Borders Music Young Composers Project. In the project, youth from music programs in North Lawndale and Garfield Park receive weekly composition lessons and write a piece for the Crossing Borders Music string quartet. Hear their fresh, new approaches to an age-old genre! Plus, hear music commissioned by Crossing Borders Music of emerging African-American composers including brand new works by Jessica T Carter, AJ Isaacson-Zvidzwa, and more!

Thanks to New Music Chicago for making this event possible. This season of Crossing Borders Music performances is made possible through the support of the Paul M Angell Family Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New Music USA Organizational Development Fund, the John R Halligan Fund, and CliffDwellers Foundation. Crossing Borders Music acknowledges the support of the Illinois Arts Council.
