Composers Ensemble: One-Act Opera Project
Composers Ensemble at Princeton is devoted to providing a laboratory/workshop for Princeton composers to find life for their musical vision on stage, not merely on their teachers' desks. Each season the next generation of the most gifted young composers, all drawn by Princeton's celebrated Ph.D. program in composition, meet the finest performers in the world, including such groups as eighth blackbird, ETHEL, and the Flux Quartet. This season's highlights will include performances by the Ensemble Avalon, SO percussion, shakuhachi master Riley Lee, Dither, and Newspeak. Composers Ensemble will collaborate with other campus organizations to present the Princeton One-Act Opera Project, with three world premieres, on March 30 and 31, 2012, written by Princeton undergraduate composer/ librettist team James Chu '13 and Lily Akerman '13.
