Los Angeles-based Synchromy and Brightwork new music are teaming up to explore how some of our favorite composers have been inspired by the written word, bringing the worlds of music, literature, and theatre together in the way that only Synchromy can. “Music from Text” features collaboration with stage director Jessica Salans, soprano Justine Aronson, and actors Charlotte Gulezian and Justin Huen.

Acclaimed soprano Justine Aronson returns after headlining Synchromy’s “The Other Side of Valentine’s Day” event in February of this year. She has been hailed as possessing "a deep reservoir of expressive devices" by The New York Times.

Guest cellist Ashley Walters, violist Alma Luisa Fernandez, bassist Scott Worthington and conductor Andreas Levisianos will round out Brightwork’s lineup for this one-time-only performance.

Synchromy is a composers’ collaborative producing engaging new music events that foster greater understanding and connections between the people of Los Angeles, elevating the presence of the music being created here and around the world. 

Synchromy creates the space needed for musicians, composers, and music-lovers to come together and experience work being written right here and right now. The individuals of Synchromy do not have a unified compositional style. We will never limit ourselves to one school of composition, or one genre, or one anything. There can never be a single Los Angeles style of music because of the stunning diversity of cultural influences and backgrounds that serve to make Los Angeles an exciting place to live. Our concerts aim to reflect the variety of musical voices sounding in this vibrant city. 

This is an exciting time to be a musician in Los Angeles. A new groundswell of grass-roots performing arts organizations is slowly and with determination changing the new music scene in this city. At Synchromy, any compositional voice can find a place, and our audiences expect high quality performances and enormous creativity from their artists. We are thrilled to provide the Los Angeles community with engaging concerts featuring the music of the 21st century.
