THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURED IN A PREVIOUS SEASON!
Miller is proud to be one of the key partners in Sounds of a New Century (SONiC), a new nine-day festival devoted to music written in the first decade of the 21st century by emerging composers age 40 and under. Produced in partnership with American Composers Orchestra, SONiC will feature works by over 100 composers.
Supported in part by the Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University, the festival recalls the landmark Ditson festivals of contemporary music, held at Miller Theatre in the 1940’s and 50’s, which featured premieres by Charles Ives, Aaron Copland, and Elliott Carter, among many others. Could the next Ives be among this crop of new voices? Miller hosts three performances during the festival’s opening weekend.
Saturday, October 15, 7:30 p.m.: eighth blackbird
Monday, October 17, 7:30 p.m.: Either/Or
