Event Details

ACO holds its 30th EarShot New Music Readings (formerly Underwood New Music Readings) in June 2022 in New York City, conducted by George Manahan.

In this initial reading session, hear the works of today’s emerging composers in an open rehearsal with American Composers Orchestra members and artistic staff. You will get an immersive view into what happens when an ensemble sits down to read a new work for the first time. Conductor George Manahan, Artistic Director Derek Bermel, and composer mentors Jonathan Bailey Holland and Jessie Montgomery will be on hand to facilitate the process and navigate the ins and outs of the first reading with ACO. Participants include Adeliia Faizullina, Patrick Holcomb, Tommy Dougherty, Will Stackpole, Yuting Tan, Elijah Smith, and Yuqin (“Strucky”) Yi.
