THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE
For our first concert this season, AMP presented the music of refugee composers in collaboration with the Kupferberg Holocaust Center. During the program, a panel comprised of survivors of the “Kinder Transport,” shared their stories as AMP provided historical context and insight through chamber music.
Watch the whole event HERE.
AMP's first commission concert, this program will present premieres of works written by NYC-based composers David Bridges, Rachel DeVore Fogarty, & Brian Mark specifically for our unique ensemble. These new works will be paired with our original theatre concept piece, "Love (un)Sought," featuring Amy Frey & Thomas Anawalt, directed by Taryne Kellogg.
Seating is limited at this event, so advance purchase of tickets is highly recommended. $15 in advance, $20 at door (space permitting).
Presented as part of the Composers Now Festival, which celebrates living composers, the diversity of their voices, and the significance of their musical contributions to our society. During the month of February, the Festival brings together myriad performances ranging in genre from jazz to indie, classical to post-classical, experimental to folk, and beyond.
Ticket holders can join us a half hour prior to our event (7:30pm), as our 3 composers share their thoughts about their composition process for AMP, and what it means to be a composer in present-day NYC. Sponsored by Composers Now and Fund for the City of New York.
AMP continues its mission to present music composed by women in our season's 3rd concert. We collaborate once more with Redeemer Church in Astoria, as well as local female small business owners from the area.
