30 Americans: From Canvas to Score
The UofSC School of Music’s Bridging Our Distances social and civic justice initiative and the CMA present a creative collaboration transforming visual art into sound. Eighteen student, alumni, and faculty composers from the School of Music’s Composition Department debut new pieces inspired by selected works from the powerful exhibition 30 Americans. The musical companion pieces, each two minutes or less, honor these visual works of art and groundbreaking artists by responding to their message, content, shape, contour, lines, color, texture, and found materials. The creative process culminates in live performances by three outstanding UofSC graduate ensembles, the New Sounds Trio (strings), the Fuse Ensemble (winds), and The Collective (mixed). Free. Gallery admission not included. December 5 at 3 p.m.
