Anthony Braxton's Tri-Centric Foundation, in partnership with Nobel laureate Dr. Torsten Wiesel, will present its third Commissioning Concert, premiering orchestral works by composers Michael Attias, Dan Blake, Joseph Daley and Jessica Pavone, conducted by Taylor Ho Bynum. Previously, the Tri-Centric Orchestra has premiered works by Anthony Braxton, Taylor Ho Bynum, Nicole Mitchell, Jason Kao Hwang, Mark Taylor and Kamala Sankaram.
Tri-Centric's Commissioning Series, now in its third year, was created to offer the next generation of creative artists the opportunity to create ambitious new musical works, following Braxton’s tradition of innovative and uncompromising musical exploration. This year, the Commissioning Series has the generous support of Dr. Torsten Wiesel,1981 Nobel laureate in Physiology or Medicine, a global human rights advocate and an ardent supporter of the education and the arts.
