Description:andPlay, a violin/viola duo based in New York City, focuses on commissioning new works and performing lesser-known contemporary ones. andPlay is especially passionate about the collaborative experience of creating new music. In order to share this process with the wider community, andPlay began a series of free events beginning in 2019 at public venues in Manhattan, entitled "andPlay (in) conversation." Each event includes a guest composer who is a former or current collaborator with andPlay. This event features Sky Macklay. Macklay's 2019 composition for andPlay, Maps (of Friendship), is a humorous look at the benefits and woes of commuting and transportation in our daily lives.
This event is made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation and administered by LMCC.
