The Lost Words: Ashkan Behzadi and Fjóla Evans

  • Placido Domingo Hall at National Opera Center 330 7th Avenue, Floor 7 New York, NY, 10001 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 Ashkan Behzadi's "Willow" and Fjóla Evans’s “Dandelion." 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
2/7/19, 8pm, Placido Domingo Hall at Opera America
