Inside the Music:

Tuesday, January 22 at 7:00 PM EST

Current NWS Bassoon Fellow Bee Ungar joins NWS alumna Rebekah Heller, Co-Artistic Director of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) for a deep dive into new works for an unusual instrument. Explore repertoire by living composers who are women and/or folks of color, some of whom will remotely join the presentation. They’ll also highlight ICE Commons -- an open, free database created by ICE, where composers can submit their works to be heard and potentially performed, and where performers anywhere in the world can look to hear or perform new repertoire. This is especially important in our world which creates barriers along the lines of privilege and pedigree, and ICE hopes that this open, crowd-sourced platform can help break down those walls.
