2007-2008 Season

Integrating musical creativity into everyday life

This was quite an ambitious season for a young organization.  We publicly screened the hour long documentary film we made with filmmaker Dave Less about our collaboration with Beijing composer Xiaogang Ye from the year before, we gave the premiere of a new multi-disciplinary piece for dance and music inspired by stories by Ben Hecht.

Our Composer Alive: Ireland project came to its conclusion with a fabulous concert at the Chicago Cultural Center and we launched a new initiative for children called Noteplay which was the early seed of what would become the ACM School of Music.
