#187 AACM at 50

Chicago’s storied Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians has provided a unique place for musicians of all kinds to create unique and stunning new creations.

AACM turned 50 in 2015 and we’ll celebrate with performances of Afterword, an opera about the AACM by longtime member and celebrated composer George Lewis.

We’ll chat with Lewis about the piece, the AACM, and play music by other AACM composers.

Hosted by Seth Boustead
Produced by Sarah Zwinklis
