Composer-in-Residence Hannibal Lokumbe
Leading up to the premiere of a newly commissioned work Healing Tones in the 2018-19 season Hannibal Lokumbe will be centrally embedded within The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Philadelphia community. His work will include performing and workshopping new pieces, mentoring composers, and promoting public access to the creative process, all in partnership with schools, churches, detention centers, and community organizations.
Create, collaborate, discuss, and socialize!
The Composer’s Umbrella is designed to give musicians, composers, and artists an opportunity to workshop new music with Hannibal and Philadelphia Orchestra musicians, and develop creative ideas in a community environment that celebrates exploration and experimentation. The focus is not necessarily on the completion of a composition, but rather on the generation and development of ideas and the exploration of musical possibilities. Composers are invited to bring sketches of material or new work to develop with the group as a laboratory. Community musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments to share ideas and collaborate. Th Composer’s Umbrella will culminate with a community performance and recording of selected works developed throughout the season.
All composers and musicians who are not yet professionally established are invited to participate, including student and amateur composers. People interested in attending the project as observers/non-participants are also welcome.
