The Artist as Activist

The Artist as Activist

Friday, May 4, 2018, 7pm 
East Side Freedom Library

Free Admission

Schubert Club composer-in-residence Reinaldo Moya talks about the role of a composer as an activist, his career and his music.  Moya is a graduate of Venezuela’s El Sistema program of music education and Assistant Professor of Music Composition at Augsburg University. In his compositions, Moya often explores the immigrant experience and other social issues. He is joined by pianist Matthew McCright who will perform selections of Moya’s music. McCright has performed extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the South Pacific as piano soloist and chamber musician. He has thrilled audiences and critics alike with imaginative programming that places the greatest piano repertoire alongside the music of today’s most innovative risk-takers.
