Salastina Music Society: Celebrating 5 Years with 5 Young L.A. Composers

Thayer Hall at the Colburn School
200 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
United States

Salastina Music Society and Guest Artists

In this season premiere event, Salastina Music Society will feature the music of five composers local to the Los Angeles area. Between them, they have won multiple Grammy awards, written music for film and TV, hold professorships at prestigious universities, and have numerous important commissions to their credit. Each composer will be interviewed on-stage before his composition is performed.

The composers whose works are featured in this program are: Jeremy Cavaterra (Salastina Music Society Composer in Residence), Andrew Norman (Rome Prize recipient, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Composer in Residence, and assistant professor at the USC Thornton School of Music), Adam Schoenberg (UCLA faculty, Charles Ives and Morton Gould prize winner, Kansas City Symphony Composer in Residence), Christopher Tin (two-time Grammy winner), and Philip White (film and television composer, currently for Ray Donovan and Supernatural).

About Salastina Music Society:
Currently entering its fifth season, the Salastina Music Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to presenting world-class performances of chamber music. To date, dozens of Salastina performances have been broadcast nationally on American Public Media's Performance Today. With the goals of broad audience appeal and innovative programming, Founders/Artistic Directors Maia Jasper and Kevin Kumar purposefully design each concert to be slightly shorter than the average classical music concert. The "Masterpiece Discovery" sub-series, hosted by KUSC's Brian Lauritzen, offers audiences a "guided tour" through a pillar of the repertoire. Other hallmarks of the Society are: visual and aural variety in ensemble combinations and repertoire; “free applause zones”; thoughtfully chosen new music; tangible audience participation; and extra-musical enhancements to the concert experience.
