More to Hear: The Listening Project

Fri Nov 3, 2023

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

The Listening Project, now in its third year, has grown out of an initiative to spotlight the music of historically underrepresented composers and to collaborate with a broader group of composers living today. This concert, conducted by Kensho Watanabe and hosted by renowned performer, scholar and professor Dr. Louise Toppin, will be recorded to aid and encourage future programming of this music by other orchestras. Following the concert, ticketholders will receive a complimentary digital download of each piece from the performance.
