Our new ListenHear series profiles significant contemporary musical voices. With a renowned composition program here at Penn, we seek to illuminate and hear artists who are creating new work across the musical spectrum. In the 22/23 season, we feature multiple Grammy® Award-winning jazz icon Arturo O'Farrill; prolific jazz, film and opera composer and five-time Grammy® Award-winner Terence Blanchard; Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and vocalist Caroline Shaw; and Argentine classical composer Osvaldo Golijov, who studied at Penn himself. These Philadelphia premiere performances will be enhanced by pre-show talks to further our connection to the artists and their music.
