The Black Composer Speaks: Exhortation!
In collaboration with Kahil El’ Zabar and The Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, Fulcrum Point celebrates the unique and complex voices of Black American composers by championing the music of three generations of artists, ranging from impressionistic to pop-inspired minimalism to free jazz improv. Bridging these diverse musical stylings will be a world premiere composition by the widely acclaimed Tomeka Reid. Reid’s music is both jazz and classically influenced, making her the natural fulcrum point, where tradition meets innovation. The evening will end with a set of free-jazz improv led by the legendary Kahil El’ Zabar and his Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, in collaboration with Fulcrum Point New Music Project. A roundtable discussion on inclusion and access in new art music, led by Senior Producer of WBEZ's "Worldview," Steve Bynum, precedes the concert.
