Violist Kallie Ciechomski presents Feminist Counterpoint electrified: an evening of music for viola, electronics, and projections by women, trans, and nonbinary artists. The program features a world premiere by Martha Mooke, the Brooklyn premiere of Elizabeth Baker's Planck Density, and works by Missy Mazzoli, Linda Buckley, Kirsten Volness, Hannah Selin, and Camila Agosto.
Feminist Counterpoint is the ongoing solo project of Brooklyn-based violist, Kallie Ciechomski, which champions music written in her lifetime by women, trans, and nonbinary composers. Through this project, she amplifies underrepresented voices by commissioning new works, reinforcing the existing repertoire, and reaching new audiences through lecture/recital concerts in nontraditional venues. Feminist Counterpoint concerts have included a sold-out performance at the 2018 New Music Gathering, an amplified recital in Times Square, a performance/workshop at Girls Rock Camp, and a two week West Coast Tour. This year's solo recitals include works for viola and electronics at Symphony Space's Bar Thalia series and music for viola and projections at Areté Gallery.
