The 2017 Grawemeyer Awards Lecture Series presents


Andrew Norman

Winner of the 2017 Grawemeyer Award in Music Composition

April 6, 2017, 3 p.m.

School of Music, Bird Recital Hall

American composer Andrew Norman will discuss his award-winning orchestral work, Play, which explores the relationship of choice and chance, free will and control. It investigates the ways musicians in an orchestra can play with, against, or apart from one another; and maps concepts from the world of video gaming onto traditional symphonic structures to tell a fractured narrative of power, manipulation, deceit and, ultimately, cooperation.

The lecture is free and open to the public.  View event flyer
