Over the past decade, audience members have shared with us their own interpretations of what constitutes folk music. Pamela Z crystallized this fascinating inquiry and offers her take on folk music, with a new work inspired by American 1960’s/70’s folk rock. Steven Snowden’s ‘Appalachian Polaroids’ offers a juxtaposed look at the DNA of American roots music, a work inspired by photographs of remote mountain communities in Appalachia.
In addition to two performances of this program, we offer a first-ever ApolloLab - an informal, behind-the-scenes look at the composer and new commission. Apollo presents this unique experience to you FREE of charge on Saturday, March 16th, at 2:00 PM in Matchbox 1.
