American Composers Forum, Philadelphia Chapter

1 Dec 2016

The Philadelphia Chapter of the American Composers Forum (ACF Philadelphia) is committed to supporting local composers and developing new markets for their music. By linking communities with composers and performers, ACF Philadelphia fosters a demand for new music, enriches communities, and helps develop the next generation of composers, musicians, and music patrons. In 2010, the organization received Center support for SoundExchange, a three-day residency with award-winning composer Steve Reich. The project culminated in an Argento Chamber Ensemble performance of Reich's Double Sextet, for which he received the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Music, and the Philadelphia premiere of Daniel Variations, dedicated to the late journalist Daniel Pearl.
