Part of the Joan La Barbara Residency
Joan La Barbara’s residency is generously sponsored in part by Northwestern University’s Kreeger Wolf Endowment, the Sound Arts and Industries program, the department of Art Theory and Practice, and Comparative Literary Studies program. 

Composer, performer, sound artist, and actor Joan La Barbara is known for developing a unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques, influencing generations of composers and singers. Her numerous commissions include compositions for multiple voices, chamber ensembles, orchestra, and interactive technology as well as scores for dance, video, and film productions. Her work has been presented at the Brisbane Biennial, Festival d’Automne à Paris, Warsaw Autumn, and MaerzMusik Berlin. Currently on the Mannes School of Music faculty, La Barbara has premiered compositions written for her by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson, Morton Feldman, Steve Reich, John Cage, and Alvin Lucier. 

Tickets are not required for this event.
