ACO will present composer-steel pan player, KENDALL WILLIAMS in a Composers OutFront! Concert: Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 7:30PM, The Frederick Loewe Theatre, NYU. Composers OutFront! puts composers onstage, bringing audiences closer to the creative process. Admission is free; online reservations accepted.

#Pan in Motion features works for steel drums (or pans) by Williams. His pieces display the versatility of the steel pan, an instrument born out of #Trinidad and Tobago, which is one of the newest acoustical instruments to be incorporated into #Caribbean, contemporary classical, and expressive #jazz movements. The concert will include three steel pan bands – the #NYU Steel Band performing the world premiere of Kendall Williams’ Rehearsals, plus calypsonian Lord Nelson’s Ah Goin’ an Party Tonight adapted by Williams; Crossfire Steel Orchestra in Big in De Dance, a calypso tune by Brian Griffith arranged by Williams which promotes women and their changing role, plus Williams’ Afro Confusion and Misconception; and Brooklyn Steel Orchestra performing Williams’ Midnight Breeze. Minerva Johnson and Kendall Williams will also perform Williams’ duo, 4 Sticks, a Trumpet, and a Mute.

Kendall Williams is ACO’s Van Lier Emerging Composer Fellow for 2013-2014. The fellowship is made possible by the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund and Musical Arts Fund of the New York Community Trust. The Fellowship offers a comprehensive and multi-faceted program that helps equip emerging composers with the full range of professional skills and tools necessary for building a successful career as a composer of orchestral music. Young composers have the opportunity to work with ACO artistic and administrative leadership. #KendallWilliams #Composer #Arranger #MUSIC #SteelBand #PanInMotion #ACO
