ICA Composers Now


Dialogues is an innovative new initiative of Composers Now. Hosted by Tania León, founder/artistic director of the organization. Dialogues raises visibility for composers and their music, breaks down the barriers to concert-going and engages new audiences. Short performances open the evening, followed by an illuminating town hall style conversation between composers and audience.
The theme of tonight and this inaugural season of Dialogues is the impact of the arts on our society. The September 25 event is presented in collaboration with the International Communications Association, Dwyer Cultural Center and Harlem Cultural Archives. Events will take place in all five boroughs during 2016.

Marcos Balter, composer; Ryan Muncy, saxophone
Eric Chasalow, composer; Miranda Cuckson, violin
Valerie Coleman, composer/performer
Rahzel, composer/beatboxer

Leading voices for the conversation are composers Elizabeth Hoffman, John Kaefer and Nkeiru Okoye, members of the Composers Now Board of Advisors or Distinguished Mentors Council.
