Ellen Reid is busy. This year, she’s had new music premiered by the LA Chamber Orchestra, performances of her music at the Hear Now Festival, a premiere coming up this fall with LA Opera, a new sound installation and composition for the LA Phil’s 100th anniversary season, and on Sunday the biggest piece ever commissioned by the LA Master Chorale. She’s basically like a composer-in-residence for the city of Los Angeles. She visited the KUSC Studios to discuss her new work dreams of the new world and more.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
