Tuning Talks-Practical Knowledge to Improve Intonation | Next Festival 2020

Why does a note sound in tune or not? How can we play more in tune with our colleagues? How do we know what’s the correct intonation for a given note? JACK Quartet addresses the fundamental problems of intonation with clear, practical knowledge, empowering us to make harmonious choices and speak clearly about what we want from the intonation of any given passage in music. Developing a deeper understanding of intonation is a powerful tool in a balanced set of musical skills, one of the keys to a clear-headed artistry. JACK will be taking questions throughout the presentation via chat and in Q&A sessions.

Shara Nova

In response to the impacts of COVID-19 on composers and performers, American Composers Orchestra announces Connecting ACO Community, a new initiative to commission short works for solo instrument or voice. Each composer will receive $500 to write the work, and each performer will receive $500 to perform the work, with the rights to stream for six months. With this project, ACO aims to support artists who need financial assistance; to create new work that will live beyond this crisis; and provide virtual, interactive performances to ACO’s supporters and the general public. This event will include Shara Nova’s new work for harpist and vocalist Ahya Simone, and an exclusive Q&A with the composer and performer, hosted by Ed Yim and Derek Bermel.
