The Resonate Project

RESONATE,  a  multi-year collaboration between Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings  and the Carr Center concludes with  a culminating symposium and two showcase concerts  bringing together all of the invited composers on April 14th and 15th, 2023 in the Carr Center Performance Studio. 

RESONATE, is an exciting partnership that explores the African Diaspora through the lens of contemporary American chamber music.

The project has commissioned seven American composers to create new works to be performed by each of the collaborators during the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons.

RESONATE brings together resources from seven prominent institutions in Michigan and Ohio:

  • Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings
  • The Carr Center
  • Oberlin Conservatory
  • Bowling Green State University
  • The University of Michigan/Ann Arbor
  • Michigan State University
  • Western Michigan University

A panel comprised of musicians from each of the collaborators has selected the composers who will participate in the project. The commissioned works were  performed at each of the institutions over the past two years.

Participating RESONATE composers include: Michael Frazier, Adolphus Hailstork, Nathalie Joachim, George Lewis, Patrice Rushen and Pamela Z
