A chamber opera by Austin alt classical composer Graham Reynolds is one of 46 projects nation-wide that have been awarded a coveted Creative Capital Awards.
The awards give artists $50,000 in funding for a specific project as well as $45,000 worth of career development services provided by Creative Capital, an organization whose arts philanthropy is inspired by venture principals.
Reynolds won support for “Pancho Villa From a Safe Distance,” an experimental chamber opera.
Winners were selected from a pool of 2,500 established and emerging artists.
Reynolds performs this Saturday, premiering his latest piece “In the Face of Trouble,” a four-part piece for solo piano and live processing that riffs off of Beethoven’s Sonata for Piano in E Major.
Noted pianist Michelle Schumann will perform the Beethoven Sonata followed by Reynold’s piece which he wrote just for here. Details here.
