Each year, AME features one American composer on an entire program. Last season, we featured the music of Steven Stucky, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in music and one of America's greatest living composers. This season, we are proud to feature not just one, but two of America's most treasured composers who just happen to be married! Chen Yi and Zhou Long will share a rare double-billed program on two evenings, and we will perform an evening of their finest works. Both composers will be in the audience for both concerts and we will interview them during intermission, leaving room for questions from the audience. There will also be a reception afterwards where you can meet both the composers and the members of AME. Please join us for an evening of fine music by two of the most treasured American composers alive today.
