“The show is an ideal mixing of medium and message: a tightly produced broadcast exploring a subject—the oft-overlooked world of modern composition—that uniquely benefits from musical immersion and auditory elucidation.”
—The New Yorker

This performance explores the music of two charismatic composers -- Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw and Grawemeyer Prize-winner Andrew Norman. Hosted by Peabody-Award-winner Nadia Sirota and will be performed live at The Theatre at Ace Hotel with L.A’s own contemporary music ensemble, Wild Up, described by The New York Times as “raucous, gungy, irresistibly exuberant...[and] exceptionally virtuosic.” This concert fuses live performance, interviews, storytelling and sound design to create an enhanced experience, tracing Shaw’s and Norman’s artistic development from childhood precocity through college freak-outs to mid-career successes, to provide deep insight into the work and background these two significant composers. Sirota has years of collaborative experience with both Shaw and Norman and draws on her close familiarity with them and her intimate knowledge of their music to connect the audience with the intricacies of their work, brought to life on stage by Wild Up under the direction of Chris Rountree. They’ll talk, play, joke around, and show the audience the artistic process from the inside-out, all integrated within a musical program that includes large and small ensemble works from throughout both artists’ impressive careers. Part Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts and part late night talk show, the concert and podcasts are an entertaining and seriously insightful approach for the new music insider and newcomer alike.

Funds provided by Kevin Jeske Young Artist Fund and AVK Arts.
