“Our community needs ACO’s continued work in the 2020-21 season. Will you join me in supporting their work with a gift before October 30th?
At this moment in time, we face the potential loss of a generation of rising artists’ voices. We have never faced a moment quite as daunting as this one. The pandemic has shown us how vulnerable our freelance composers, soloists and rostered musicians are. Even the most successful working artists have watched cancellation after cancellation throw their entire livelihood into uncertainty and chaos.
From the beginning of the pandemic, ACO responded with the Connecting ACO Community initiative, commissioning composers and paying musicians to perform from their homes. When we needed work and hope that our careers would continue, ACO showed up.
I was fortunate to be one of the 19 composers selected to write a piece in response to the COVID 19 pandemic. My collaboration with countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus proved to be so fruitful and meaningful. If you haven’t seen it yet, I urge you to watch our video performance at left, or click here.”
