About this project

£501

6

Dr. Joel Sachs (Juilliard School, New York) will be directing young talented musicians in works he has chosen by John Cage, Earle Brown, Morton Feldman and Ruth Crawford Seeger.

This project provides an opportunity to all participants to perform innovative American music with a leading contemporary music conductor who knew personally several of the composers featured.

'Listen America!' brings over a century of great American music to Brighton & Hove, opening your ears to a New Found Land of idea and sound.

Support us in our drive to nurture bright young talented musicians whom we assist financially for this project.

Risks and challenges

Although we have backing from three major supporters, we still have £5,000 to make ends meet through ticket sales and individual support. Help us on our way by pledging us to reach our target of raising £500 by May 5th, the launch day of our series.
