This Bargemusic concert will feature works of NYC-based composer/performers with clarinetist/hichiriki player Thomas Piercy performing each work with the composer. The concert features a wide variety of styles of music - from abstract contemporary classical to minimalism, from Broadway influenced pieces to nuevo tango. The composer/performers come from all walks of life and experience: from university students to university professors; from self-taught composers to composers with Ph.Ds.; from emerging composers to composers that have won such prominent awards as the Latin Grammy Award.
