2022

Four By One Commissioning Project: Spring 2022. A season-long special commissioning project titled Four By One will feature five notable composers of color: Nathalie Joachim, Valerie Coleman, Amir Bitran, Paul Desenne, and Daniel Bernard Roumain. Each composer was commissioned by Celebrity Series to create a five-minute piece for a quartet that consists of four one-minute solos for each musician and an ending that includes all four musicians. The idea was inspired by curator Robin Baker’s involvement in Concert For One, a recent Celebrity Series Public Performance Project. All concerts will be available for on-demand viewing the following Thursday.

Performance times and reservation details will be announced. Additional Four By One programming will include masterclasses, a virtual composer panel, and composer visits. More spring programming to be announced in fall 2021!
