American Composers Orchestra
Orchestra Underground: Border Vanguards
Hailed as "the singer for a new generation of firebrands eager to push the boundaries" (Billboard), Brazilian songstress Luciana Souza joins the American Composers Orchestra for an evening of internationally influenced works that defy musical and political borders. The renowned vocalist performs Derek Bermel’s Mar de Setembro, a song cycle set to texts by the late Portuguese poet Eugénio de Andrade and written expressly for Souza. The ensemble also performs works by Gunther Schuller, Gabriela Lena Frank, Silvestre Revueltas, and Marcos Balter.
