This fall, OSL’s Music in Color concert celebrates the music of Eleanor Alberga. Born in Jamaica and currently based in the UK, Alberga composes with a deeply emotional language and structural clarity that has drawn high praise on an international level. OSL musicians will perform her Jamaican Medley, String Quartet No. 1, and the North American premiere of her Shining Gate of Morpheus for horn and string quartet. Performances will include narration by playwright and performer Kirya Traber. This virtual concert features imagery from NYC artists curated in response to Alberga's music.

A Zoom discussion with Eleanor Alberga will take place Sunday, Dec 6 at 2 p.m. Click here for details.
