GABRIELA LENA FRANK CREATIVE ACADEMY OF MUSIC

presents

AN EVENING OF WORLD PREMIERES

"Musicians are naturals for embodying citizenship, but sometimes, truthfully, we need to be reminded. After all, orchestra auditions and competitions transfix us while reviews send our spirits soaring or plummeting. Who has time to worry about citizenship when the industry is so jealous of every hour of our practice time? I learned that there is a hunger among musicians for relevance beyond the concert hall. Really, who better than artists to address that awful sort of benign neglect, that insidious censorship of voices, that happens in communities with limited access to creativity and self-expression?"

- Gabriela Lena Frank [on arts citizenship]

Click on the video below to get a quick glimpse of our composers on rotating dinner duty at GLFCAM: Dustin Carlson grinding Wild Goose and Turkey for sausage (garnished with Jeremy's foraged Black Trumpet Mushrooms and Sake Plumped Cherries), Kai Ono separating eggs for Handmade Pasta, and Eliana Echeverry peeling Roasted Beets.

About the GLFCAM/ACF collaboration:

In February 2019, violinist, composer, and ACF director Michi Wiancko traveled to Boonville, CA with dear friends and acclaimed chamber musicians (and ACF alumni) violist Melissa Reardon and cellist Raman Ramakrishnan. They spent a divine week at the gorgeous homestead of the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music, working with up-and-coming composers on pieces they had been developing over the course of the previous year.

Antenna Cloud Farm Concert #6 will be the culmination of this creative mentorship process, which, under the guidance and inspirational vision of Gabriela Lena Frank, also has a strong focus on arts citizenship and activism.

The following composers will be presenting new works: Samuel Winnie, Samantha Boshnack, Iman Habibi, Dustin Carlson, Kai Ono, and Tanner Porter. Learn more about the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music here: www.glfcam.com.

About Gabriela Lena Frank:

"Crafted with unself-conscious mastery” .[The Washington Post]

 

“Glorious” .[Los Angeles Times]

Currently serving as Composer-in-Residence with the storied Philadelphia Orchestra and included in the Washington Post's list of the 35 most significant women composers in history (August, 2017), identity has always been at the center of composer/pianist Gabriela Lena Frank's music. Born in Berkeley, California (September, 1972), to a mother of mixed Peruvian/Chinese ancestry and a father of Lithuanian/Jewish descent, Gabriela explores her multicultural heritage most ardently through her compositions. Inspired by the works of Bela Bartók and Alberto Ginastera, Gabriela is something of a musical anthropologist. She has traveled extensively throughout South America and her pieces reflect and refract her studies of Latin American folklore, incorporating poetry, mythology, and native musical styles into a western classical framework that is uniquely her own.
