MONDAY, MAY 2 • 7:30 PM
Alumni Concert at Merkin Hall – Kaufman Music Center • 129 West 67th Street, NYC
In 1921 the Conservatoire Américain de Fontainebleau opened its doors to American students from every state and every walk of life. Aaron Copland was the first to apply, marking the beginning of a procession of influential musicians and composers seeking the inspiration and knowledge of esteemed pedagogues such as Nadia Boulanger and Robert Casadesus. This concert celebrates the rich history of Fontainebleau with diverse works by Aaron Copland, George T. Walker, Louise Talma, and Charles Fox; world premieres by Bright Sheng, Dalit Warshaw and Mahir Cetiz; and a tribute to Nadia Boulanger featuring variations based on a theme by Robert Levin.
