Orchestra of St Luke’s presents: A Composer’s Voice: Zoom Discussion with Eleanor Alberga & Kirya Traber

December 6, 2020 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Join us for a conversation with Eleanor Alberga, who will elaborate on her creative process and the compositions featured in our online concert. In connection with its virtual concert The Imagination of Eleanor Alberga, (available on-demand Dec. 3 – Jan. 15), OSL will be hosting a live discussion with composer Eleanor Alberga and playwright Kirya Traber. Alberga, who has received international acclaim for performances of her works by the London Philharmonic and the BBC Proms, will elaborate on her creative process and compositions featured in our online narrative concert. This Zoom discussion is free and open to the public, and will be moderated by the OSL Director of Education & Community Engagement, Andrew Roitstein.



Be part of the discussion! We invite audience members to submit their questions for Eleanor Alberga to education@OSLmusic.org.

This fall, OSL’s Music in Color concert celebrates the music of Eleanor Alberga. Born in Jamaica and currently based in the UK, Alberga composes with a deeply emotional language and structural clarity that has drawn high praise on an international level. OSL Musicians will be joined by narrator Kirya Traber to present a concert of Alberga’s music alongside pieces by J.S. Bach and Béla Bartók; the program will culminate in the North American premiere of the Alberga’s piece for horn and string quartet, Shining Gate of Morpheus.

Presented in collaboration with: Brooklyn Public Library, Flushing Town Hall, Hostos Center for Arts and Culture, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden.
