On May 8, the five 2019 Fellows in Kaufman Music Center’s Luna Composition Lab mentorship program for young, female-identifying, non-binary and gender non-conforming composers will premiere their commissions at Merkin Hall. The program also includes music by Shelley Washington, Mary Halvorson and Alex Temple. The 2019 Luna Composition Lab Fellows hail from around the country and range in age from 13 to 18.
Their five commissioned pieces draw inspiration from a wide variety of sources including the creation of the world, the liberation of women from oppression, the struggle between tension and peace, the experience of trauma, and the fascinating energy of ostriches.
The performance features some of NYC’s finest young musicians, who hail from from Kaufman Music Center’s Face the Music teen new music program and Special Music School High School along with players from NYC’s top conservatory programs – Juilliard Pre-College, Mannes Prep at The New School’s Open Campus and the Manhattan School of Music Pre-College.
