The Response Project: ON BEHALF

Join us for the Midwestern Premiere of The Response Project: ON BEHALF

seven new works for violin+piano presented by Brianna Matzke and Hajnal Pivnick. Each of the seven composers have chosen to speak “on behalf” of an idea, person, community or condition. Some of the works were written on behalf of Earth’s future residents, on behalf of disability, and even on behalf of two Southern grandmothers.

List of composers and works:

Will R. Ayers, A Sense of Something Commonplace

Andy Costello, On Behalf of the Failure to Create Collaborations That are Truly Equal Due to Inherent Privileges that Cannot Be Erased
