Mami Kosemura’s video featured at Carnegie Hall

Mami Kosemura, The Hotel That Time Forgot, 2017; Composed by Paola Prestini

Friday, March 24, 2017 
7:30 PM at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall

RU Alum Mami Kosemura's video collaboration with the composer Paola Prestini will be shown as a part of American Composers Orchestra Orchestra Underground: Past Forward program at Carnegie Hall.

Acclaimed for “consistently champion[ing] contemporary music with consistent excellence” (The New York Times), American Composers Orchestra showcases two premieres—one commissioned by Carnegie Hall—by two cutting-edge composers and a classic from Steve Reich, Tehillim (Hebrew for “psalms”). Inspired by cantillation he heard in Israel, Reich sets four psalms in an exotically scored and rhythmically invigorating work that pulses with life and is considered one of the modern master’s most thrilling compositions.

Performers: George Manahan, Music Director and Conductor; Elizabeth Bates, Vocals; Rachel Calloway, Vocals; Martha Cluver, Vocals; Mellissa Hughes, Vocals; Oliver Hagen, Keyboards; David Friend, Keyboards; Mami Kosemura, Video Artist

Program: DAVID HERTZBERG Chamber Symphony (World Premiere); PAOLA PRESTINI The Hotel That Time Forgot (World Premiere); TREVOR WESTON Flying Fish (World Premiere, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall); STEVE REICH Tehillim
