Electroacoustic pieces by composers Suzanne Farrin, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Liza Lim, Marcos Balter, and Phyllis Chen will be performed, alongside commentary by Chase. She will be joined by flutist Amir Farsi, a Density Fellow and Carnegie Hall Ensemble Connect Fellow, and by Ilaria Hawley, a 14-year-old flutist and composer who was the recipient of an ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award.
