Claire Chase presents Composing Women Project

  • National Sawdust 80 North 6th Street Brooklyn, NY, 11249 United States (map)

Tickets & Info Here!

From an exploration of musical memories to a work that draws from the intricate patterns of stuttered speech, MacArthur Fellow and flute virtuoso Claire Chase presents five original pieces from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music’s Composing Women program.

Opening with Bree van Reyk’s A (Real and Imagined) Map of Claire Chase, a solo bass flute composition that traces musical motifs from Chase’s childhood sound memories, and continuing with an excavation of previously unreleased pop songs by Peggy Polias, the Composing Women program concert employs flute, electronics, and vocals to present a kaleidoscopic range of styles displaying the boundless sonic possibilities of the flute.

Join National Sawdust and Claire Chase in a celebration of female composers and see the artist San Francisco Classical Voice calls “one of the world’s foremost performers.”
