The Made in California project is an exciting collaborative concert series with 11 composers throughout the state. Now Hear Ensemble believes that collaboration is a tremendously useful mode of creation for new music. The landscape of Californian music is rich and diverse, and as a part of this artistic realm, NHE seeks to create an accessible, uniform medium for the interchange of ideas between composers, performers and audiences. Made in California will be presented in San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Francisco.
Music by Eoin Callery, Carolyn Chen, Todd Lerew, Mateo Lugo, Daniel Miller, Jon Myers, Iván Naranjo, Nick Norton, Dan VanHassel, David Werfelmann and Kevin Zhang—composers with ties to CalArts, Mills College, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and USC.
