The Lost Words: Luis Fernando Amaya and Maria Kaoutzani

  • Areté Venue and Gallery 67 West Street #103 Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

Amalgama presents a performance of new commissions from our 2018-19 season project, The Lost Words. A collaboration with author Robert Macfarlane and illustrator Jackie Morris based on their children's book of the same title, "The Lost Words" addresses current environmental concerns, and engages children (and adults!), with creativity and optimism. 

The program features Luis Fernando Amaya's "Sky-Wire [Escái-Guáyer]," and Maria Kaoutzani's "Adder." In the spirit of collaboration and our mission to explore the areas between improvisation and notated music, the composers will join the musicians of Amalgama on stage to perform free and structured improvisations.

Suggested donation $15/$10 students
