Interactive roundtable with composers and performers to follow at 6 PM PDT | 9 PM EDT
Join us for a free virtual concert, “Mare’ot/Mirrors”, celebrating the extraordinary contemporary music composed by six women of Jewish heritage. Performed by Atlanta-based new music ensemble Bent Frequency, the concert features music by Lera Auerbach, Alyssa Weinberg, Gabriela Lena Frank, Judith Shatin, Nomi Epstein and Betty Olivero. It will be followed by an audience interactive roundtable with conversations surrounding their process and their art, including composers Nomi Epstein, Judith Shatin and Alyssa Weinberg and performers Stuart Gerber and Jan Berry Baker.
