Bard Music West Plays
GAMES AND REVOLUTIONS
March 28-31, 2019
featuring composers Danny Clay and Gabriella Smith
In Games and Revolutions, we’ll be showcasing two incredibly creative young composers with Bay Area ties, Danny Clay and Gabriella Smith. Meet the composers and discover some of their many inspirations, including coral reefs, children's games, and Haydn.
Clay and Smith’s music playfully explores new perspectives on music-making and invites the audience to join in (sometimes literally!). Both composers will be present at select performances.
Games and Revolutions is the first program of Bard Music West Plays - a brand new series of performances from Bard Music West exploring the music and influences of emerging composers.
