The concert will feature the west coast premiere of a new work by Philippe Leroux, as well as a world premiere by California composer Nicole Mitchell, whose work celebrates African-American culture while reaching across genres, and Schnee by Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen, a work esteemed as one of the first classics of 21st-century music.

Nicole Mitchell is an American flautist, composer, and former president of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). We’ll be featuring a world premiere, Procession Time, by California composer Nicole Mitchell in our October 21 concert. We’re honored to also be featuring Mitchell in our afternoon composer talk, “How Music Is Made,” where our artistic director Steven Schick will be asking her about her music, her inspirations, and her special insights into the composition we will hear that evening.

As the founder of Black Earth Ensemble, Black Earth Strings, Ice Crystal, and Sonic Projections, Mitchell’s music celebrates African American culture while reaching across genres and integrating new ideas with moments in the legacy of jazz, gospel, experimentalism, pop and African percussion.

This premiere is part of SFCMP’s season-opener concert, which will also feature the west coast premiere of a new work by Philippe Leroux, as well as Schnee by Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen, a work esteemed as one of the first classics of 21st-century music.
