Sandcastle New Music Collective in partnership with Moirae Ensemble present Creativity through Community, an interactive program with composers and performers celebrating constructive dialogue between artists.
Sandcastle New Music Collective was founded in 2015 by recent conservatory graduates as a surrogate for lessons and studio classes. Since then, its members have met every two months to share works-in-progress, get feedback from trusted colleagues, and exchange insights about their process.
In this rare public showing, which includes several world premieres, five composers with diverse aesthetics will demonstrate how they drew inspiration from one another.
The Moirae Ensemble is a musical collective based in New York City that interweaves classical music with themes of social responsibility. Drawing from a roster of some of New York’s finest and most innovative young musicians and composers, the ensemble focuses on contemporary classical music, commissioning works that push the boundaries of what it means to be a traditional chamber music ensemble. The Moirae Ensemble performs and commissions socially relevant works that address a wide range of humanitarian concerns, with a particular focus on women composers and social issues that particularly affect women.
