A Note from Joseph "Yossi" Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s so nice to have a varied, fun, and meaningful program written by six contemporary composers—one of whom is actually performing! At the center of this evening is a newly commissioned work from Pulitzer Prize recipient Henry Threadgill reflecting on the history of civil rights, fittingly timed to observe the 50th anniversary year of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s death.
