Join us in celebrating the rich culture of the African diaspora in America with a variety of events, including a subscription concert conducted by Thomas Wilkins. This concert also marks the NY Phil debut of Seth Parker Woods — “a cellist of power and grace” (The Guardian). Woods performs the New York premiere of a cello concerto written for him by Nathalie Joachim, whose music “inevitably becomes ... season highlights wherever it appears” (Chicago Tribune). Joachim’s piece explores the transformational nature of fashion through the lens of Black dandyism — a movement that, writes the composer, “represents an empowered reclaiming of self.”

Also on the program is Carlos Simon’s Four Black American Dances, which pays homage to the wide range of Black American dance traditions.

The driving rhythms of David Baker’s Kosbro are followed by William Grant Still’s Autochthonous Symphony, a groundbreaking work that portrays, in the composer’s words, “the fusion of musical cultures in North America.”

Also part of our Afromodernism celebration is an event designed by International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) — “America’s foremost new-music group” (The New Yorker). Details and location to be announced.

Plus, our first Young People’s Concert of the season explores through music the experience of Black Americans and the African diaspora.
