conductor & host
The New Creations Festival hits the ground running with curator Tod Machover's Jeux Deux, a dazzling interweaving of HyperPiano (disklavier), orchestra, interactive software, and live graphics. In the symphony-scale piece Alternative Energy, Mason Bates, Composer-in-Residence with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, depicts the past, present, and future of energy. In the playful Arcadiac, Nicole Lizée has the orchestra perform live accompaniment to vintage images from arcade games of the 1970s and 80s.
Each concert of the New Creations Festival also has spectacular pre- and post-concert events, so come early and stay late!
