COFFEE: FESTIVAL OF AMERICAN MUSIC 2 – JOURNEYS OF FAITH

Friday, March 10, 2023 11:00am

Event Description

Our Festival this year carries the title “Journeys of Faith”. Through a series of panel discussions pairing Jewish and Black pastors and clergy, our Festival sponsors and partners will seek to connect those Louisvillian communities through discussions of faith and life experience. Their goal is to enable a better understanding of one another and achieve connection through a renewed foundation of relationship. Musically the LO will explore the music of Jewish composers Leonard Bernstein and Olga Neuwirth.  American Music will welcome two brand new compositions to its ranks from our Creators Corps members, TJ Cole and Tyler Taylor.

Leonard Bernstein, influenced by poet W. H Auden’s work of the same title, explored existentialism in the modern world. Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2 explores the Seven Ages of Man with the piano soloist as the protagonist.

Sebastian Chang‘s first major performance as a piano soloist was in his own composition Concertino for Piano and Orchestra with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra at the age of 9. Sebastian obtained his B.M. in Composition from the Curtis Institute of Music & an M.M. in Composition from the University of Southern California. Chang is a regular collaborator with the Louisville Orchestra as an orchestral pianist and for many special events.

Tyler TAYLOR: Revisions (World Premiere piece commissioned from the Louisville Orchestra Creators Corps)
