Classical Revolution: LA presents L.A. Indie:
Music of the people, by the people, for the people.
Each L.A. Indie event gives attendees the chance to kick back, relax and get to know some of the most interesting composers working in Los Angeles. Saturday, October 6th, we get intimate with composer Stephen Cohn.
Stephen won an Emmy for "Outstanding Achievement in Music" and has had his music recorded by prominent artists, including the Arditti Quartet, but he's down for having his music performed by young musicians in a bar. Why? Stephen says that emerging artists bring "magic" to his music. Between the pieces Stephen and the musicians will tell all the juicy details about what inspired this amazing music!
