Alecia Lawyer, oboe
In response to the impacts of COVID-19 on composers and performers, American Composers Orchestra announces Connecting ACO Community, a new initiative to commission short works for solo instrument or voice.
This event will include the world premiere of Alejandro Basulto Martinez’s new work for oboist Alecia Lawyer and an exclusive Q&A with the composer and performer, hosted by Ed Yim and Derek Bermel.
The livestream will take place at 5pm (Eastern) / 2pm (Pacific).
Ticketholders will receive a private link to join the performance, and all of the proceeds from the ticket sales will go solely to fund artists involved in this project. If the $5 entrance fee poses a barrier to participation, please fill out an anonymous form at bit.ly/ACOConnectComp or email Aiden Feltkamp at email@example.com.
The recorded session will be available within 24 hours after the performance on ACO’s website and social media platforms, as well as on MUSIC on the REBOUND: an online festival for participating in live events as well as a platform for streaming concerts.
