Alexandra du Bois, composition masterclass

Wednesday • June 24, 2020   |   8:00 pm

The music of Alexandra du Bois is often propelled by issues of indifference and inequality throughout the United States and the world. Traveling to the countries that inform and inspire her work, her music has been performed in concert halls across five continents. With commissions from Kronos Quartet, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and Music Teachers National Association, she’s served as composer-in-residence at Carnegie Hall and Southwest Chamber Music Festival with whom she toured throughout Los Angeles and Vietnam.
