"Orchestra Underground" Presents Steve Coleman, Susie Ibarra, Scott Johnson & Ken Thomson in "Hybridity" Concert on Oct. 19 in New York City
(Published: September 20, 2007)
The American Composers Orchestra presents its first concert of the season on Friday, October 19, 2007, at 7:30 p.m. in Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall. This Orchestra Underground program taps into the creativity of a rare group of category-crossing composer-performers who fuel their cutting-edge compositions with an inventive mix of sounds, styles, influences, and energies.
Plugging into the power of "hybridity," saxophonist Steve Coleman, percussionist Susie Ibarra, guitarist Scott Johnson and saxophonist Ken Thomson rev-up the orchestra with their four world premieres, and Orchestra Underground plays Charles Mingus's Third Stream masterpiece Revelations. Special guest ensemble gutbucket and painter-projectionist Makoto Fujimura turn up the juice, with Principal Guest Conductor Steven Sloane at the controls.
