The Albany Symphony American Music Festival’s Reading Session will take place tonight at 7:30pm in the Concert Hall at EMPAC.
The Reading Session is a one-of-a-kind sneak peek into the world of music today, as up-and-coming composers, chosen from a competitive national selection process, have their works read by an orchestra for the first time.
This year’s composers have been selected from a nationwide call for scores. In addition to feedback from Maestro David Alan Miller and the audience, Mentor Composer Joan Tower and orchestra members will weigh in on their work. The program includes Michael-Thomas Foumai's Nataraja; Evan Fein’s Newton’s Clock and Tucker Fuller’s It Moves Us Not.
