Eastman School of Music students had the opportunity to compose music for an eclectic selection of recently preserved silent short films from the collections of the George Eastman House. Their works will be performed live by a chamber ensemble of Eastman students under conductor Yorgos Kouritas.
In addition, the Dryden Theatre event will include experimental works by filmmakers Jean Detheux, Stephanie Maxwell, and Peter Byrne and Carole Woodlock, with scores composed by Michaela Eremiášová and Jairo Duarte-López. These works will be performed live by Eastman Triana, an ensemble composed of Eastman alumnae Julianne Kirk, clarinet, Anyango Yarbo-Davenport, violin, and Yin Zheng, piano, with soprano Chelsea Bonagura, also a graduate of Eastman School.
