This year our annual Composer Alive collaboration is with Brooklyn-based composer Ben Vida. Mr. Vida will compose a new piece for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and fixed electronics in three installments. We will record each installment in front of a live audience and then post them to our website with comments from the composer.
In September we will give the World Premiere of Ben's new piece and also perform the music of other living composers.


First Installment to be performed/recorded May 20th at 2:00 PM at the Green Mill as part of ACM's Spring Spectacular.
Second Installment TBD in July
Third Installment August 11th at 5:00 PM at the Empty Bottle.
Final Concert in Chicago TBD in September
