The Arsht Center has invited Israeli-born composer Avner Dorman to work with young musicians from all over Miami-Dade County in advance of the world premiere of his latest composition “Siklón,” which was created for the Arsht Center’s 10th Anniversary and will be performed by The Cleveland Orchestra.
Dorman’s works utilize an exciting and complex rhythmic vocabulary, as well as unique timbres and colors in orchestral, chamber, and solo settings. He is an active conductor and current music director of CityMusic Cleveland Chamber Orchestra. He holds a doctorate in composition from the Juilliard School and serves as Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition at the Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College.
On Wednesday, March 9 at 3:30 p.m., Dorman will lead our Miami Music Project musicians in a fully interactive music workshop. This will take place at our Little Haiti Chapter located at Toussaint L’Ouverture Elementary School, 120 NE 59 Street, Miami, FL 33137. We thank our partners at the Arsht Center for this wonderful opportunity.
