And They Persist | Experience Longy Series

Tuesday • April 20, 2021   |   7:00 pm



“And They Persist” on April 20, 2021 at 7:00pm

A conversation with contemporary composers about what it means to pursue an isolated existence in music. This event will feature composers who represent various lived experiences and distinct individual artistic voices. A panel discussion will illuminate the often-undiscussed features of a composer’s working life and the tenacity and perseverance required to bring their music to life.

Co-hosted by Assistant Dean of Artistic and Social Change Ian Saunders and Composition Department Chair Alexandra du Bois, panelists include Matthew Evan Taylor, alumna Melika Fitzhugh, Longy faculty members Amy Beth Kirsten and Ruth Mendelson, and Wind and Brass Department Chair Andy Kozar.

Longy is grateful to our event co-sponsors: Cambridge Center for Adult Education, Dunamis, and Free Soil Arts Collective.

Funds raised by this event will support Longy’s social change programs. Event is free for Longy Fund donors.
