New Canons

A Hybrid Virtual & In-Person Performance

Live Orchestra: Cary Hall at DiMenna Center

Event Details

On Saturday, October 23, 2021, ACO and Groupmuse Foundation co-present New Canons, a hybrid virtual and in-person performance featuring the world premiere of Cohere by Trevor New and an ACO-commissioned work, Latency Canons by Ray Lustig, from 2013. Both works allow audiences to surf the boundaries between in-person and remote environments and will take place simultaneously at four New York City locations with additional musicians participating from cities worldwide. ACO welcomes audience members to choose to experience this performance at a public gathering space, as an intimate concert in a private home, or as a fully digital event via Groupmuse’s online platform. Tickets will go on sale in September; locations will be announced at that time.
