Cloud's Break For Early Spring-Time Celebration Of 21st Century Women Composers In Nation's Capital

Oni Buchanan’s "In the Moment: Women Composers of the 21st Century" program today at noon at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. FREE

Ms. Buchanan’s concert programming is often interdisciplinary in nature, directly engaging the intimate connections between music and the visual arts, music and poetry, music and dance. She also programs adventurous contemporary works alongside established repertoire, bringing works from disparate centuries into fascinating conversation. Her most current performance project is her ongoing concert series, “In the Moment: Women Composers of the 21st Century,” the first program of which she will premiere this spring at such venues as the National Gallery of Art and UC Berkeley’s Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT).
