Presented in partnership with The Wallace Foundation

This session will dive into PRISM Quartet’s newly launched audience-engagement program, “Unlocking Your Inner Composer,” a collaboration with composer-percussionists Susie Ibarra and Tyshawn Sorey in a workshop series at the Free Library of Philadelphia. This series directly engaged participants in the creative process, attracting an intergenerational and multiracial audience ranging in age from 13-80. Learn how these musicians connected their community members to the inner workings of chamber music, and how you can adapt their strategies to fit your own community.
