Generational Fanfares

Part of: Sounds & Stories

 Tuesday, February 22, 2022  6:30pm  Live Stream - OSLmusic.org Directions

Ticketing Information

OSL Box Office: 212.594.6100 x2

This program celebrates two female composers with strong OSL ties: Joan Tower, who previously served as the orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence, and Valerie Coleman, whose Fanfare for Uncommon Times (2021), an OSL commission, will receive its world premiere recording. As the New York Times recognized when OSL premiered the work last summer, Coleman’s fanfare addresses “elements of the Black experience during a challenging time,” and is “at once reflective and restless, uplifting and ominous.”

All ticketholders are invited to a post-concert discussion and conversation led by OSL President and Executive Director James Roe with Joan Tower and Valerie Coleman.


Sounds & Stories is supported by a leadership gift from Carol B. Grossman and additional generous support from Alden Toevs.
