“New Musicin the Jungle: Building a Freelance Career Today”
This pre-concert Q&A isa must-see for anyone exploring chamber music and freelance career options. Led by Bang on a Can All-Stars’ cellist Ashley Bathgate and NYC-based pianist Karl Larson, the discussion will offer practical tips for transitioning from academic life into a freelance performing career in a major city, the collaborative process behind their successful $6,500 Kickstarter campaign to record Ken Thomson’s restless, and the mechanics of joining an established group like Bang on a Can. Bathgate and Larson will also present a concert of all new music. The program is built around Thomson's restless, written for the duo and the centerpiece of a record they recently finished and will release this fall. The rest of the program will feature an eclecticset of music by Galina Ustvolskaya and Reiko Fueting.

Presented in collaboration with SMTD’s new Department of Chamber Music.
