Contrabass Flutist
Ned McGowan
in 'Composers OutFront!'
at BAMCafé, April 26

with Susanna Borsch, recorder
Derek Bermel, clarinet
Stephen Gosling, piano


Ned McGowanComposers OutFront!, ACO's season-long focus on composer-performers, brings something altogether different to BAMCafé with a performance by contrabass flutist-composer Ned McGowan on Saturday, April 26, at 10:00pm. McGowan, an American composer currently living in Amsterdam, will share the stage with Dutch recorder virtuoso Susanna Borsch, along with New York composer-clarinetist Derek Bermel and pianist Stephen Gosling.

This free event is part of ACO's new Playing it UNsafe, the nation's first R&D laboratory for the development of new orchestra music.

Composers OutFront! puts composers on stage, and connects the dots between their musical roots as performers and their works for the concert hall. By featuring young musical creators--with interests ranging from jazz and improvised music to rock and pop, and a variety of world music influences--the series introduces an eclectic array of contemporary musicians to new audiences, helps develop the network of composers on whose behalf ACO exists, provides direct connections with the concerts ACO gives at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, and establishes a deeper context for audiences to understand the artists' work.

Admission & Info

The performance starts at 10:00pm. Admission is free of charge. BAMCafé is located at the Brooklyn Academy of Music at 30 Lafayette Avenue, in downtown Brooklyn.
