Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute
(Published: April 24, 2013)

Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute
June 3 & 4, 2013
Columbia University's Miller Theatre, 2960 Broadway, New York, NY

Conductor Gil Rose will preside for the ACO readings with mentor composers George Lewis (Columbia University),
Anne LeBaron (California Institute of the Arts), and Paul Chihara (UCLA). The Readings will include an open rehearsal
on June 3 at 10am, and a run-through of the composers' pieces on June 4 at 7:30pm. Both events are free and open to the public.

ACO's featured composers will be Jennifer Bellor, José BeviĆ”, Courtney Bryan, Ingrid Laubrock, Andy Milne, Richard Sussman,
and Sumi Tonooka. Jennifer Bellor, a Ph.D student in music composition at the Eastman School of Music, will bring a piece inspired by nature and chilly
November weather. Pianist and composer José BeviĆ”'s piece Noit-Alimissa (Assimilation) is an effort to combine the influences of post WWII contemporary
classical music with contemporary jazz. New Orleans native Courtney Bryan has titled her piece Shedding Skin, which is inspired by a poem of the same title
by Harryete Mullen. Ingrid Laubrock's work Vogelfrei is inspired by photos she took of the various shapes and patterns formed by the electrical wiring used to
power overground trains in Moers, Germany. Andy Milne uses concepts from classical homeopathic healing as a framework. Richard Sussman's Explorations
For Orchestra will seek to bring a sense of the spontaneity, energy, and rhythmic drive of jazz improvisation to the orchestra without actually employing a jazz
soloist or rhythm section." Sumi Tonooka's Full Circle was inspired by a dream she had after the JCOI Intensive in Los Angeles last year about orchestrating
the curve in the yin and yang sign.

Tickets are free. The ACO at Miller Theatre require reservations, please click on the following links for the

Endowment for the Arts.
