Composers Concordance Launch Party and Fundraiser

Dear Friends,
     We are thrilled to announce our 2013-14 season! We have over fifteen amazing concerts scheduled. Our 3rd annual festival is entitled ‘Timbre Tantrum’, and each of the six concerts on the festival will focus on one instrumental timbre. It’s a challenge we’ve set for ourselves – can we successfully produce six concerts in a one-week period with each event emphasizing only one timbral concept? Join us and find out if we triumph in our endeavor!
    We hope you’ll take the time to check out our new season website as well as our updated series site, and two new pages: Comp Cord Ensemble and Composers Concordance EDU. Below is a list of our upcoming concerts this season, but firstly we would love to see you on September 20th at our
Season Launch Party and Fundraiser. A great evening of music, poetry, fashion, raffles, CC boutique, games, DJ, dancing, drinks, photography, and more.
Preview our exciting upcoming season and the launch of our newest initiative: CC_Edu. Music performances, poetry and presentations by Thomas Carlo Bo, Roger Bonair-Agard, Liz Cherry, Dan Cooper, Tyra Juliette, Jacob Miller, Milica Paranosic, Gorazd Poposki, Gene Pritsker, Tobias Roberts, Vicky Vale, Di.J. Noizepunk, and Erbium. GET TICKETS
