If composers were crops…

Pumpkin crop

The arts, like farmers, are more and more focused on local sustainability nowadays, and the results show similarities beyond rhetoric: smaller entities are flourishing and offering innovative products, and the trend toward nurturing nearby artisans brings good things for all involved.

This weekend’s new music offering in Long Beach is a prime example of what artistic collaboration can create from individual endeavors, and the many local connections are an added bonus. ‘Sing a New Song‘ is a concert of contemporary works for voice and piano, featuring pieces by five composers, most with links to the shore: Carlos Carlos, Alicia Byer, Curtis Heard, Tu Nguyen; and Nicholas White. Each has singular qualities that make this a diverse and fascinating program, and two (Carlos and Heard) will also perform. Additional performers include Daniel Charleston, Samuel Grodin and Sinae Kang. This is an unticketed event, reminding us that the best things in life are free.
