THIS EVENT HAS OCCURRED Sunday, January 23, 2011 / 5:00 PM presented in collaboration with Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert Series
“You are likely to remember the concerts, since the players are top-notch and the programming adventurous.” (New York Times)
For the third consecutive season, MOSA will offer a pair of performances (January 23 and April 10) by Ensemble ACJW, a collective of outstanding young professional musicians from The Academy that has earned accolades from critics and audiences alike for the quality of its performances as well as its fresh and open-minded approach to performance and programming. All members of the group are alumni or current fellows of The Academy, a two-year program that supports them as they develop careers as top-quality performers, innovative programmers, and dedicated teachers who are fully engaged with the communities in which they live and work. The Academy is a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute in partnership with the NYC Department of Education.
Members of Ensemble ACJW perform works by Charles Wuorinen, György Ligeti, Lou Harrison, and Astor Piazzolla, presented by Music at Our Saviour’s Atonement in collaboration with Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concert Series.
