American Composers Forum

Project Por Amor forged relationships between the American Composers Forum and the Havana Contemporary Music Festival (UNEAC) to curate concerts of American composers in Havana in 2015 and 2017. NYC new music ensemble Third Sound traveled to perform a selection of works by Jennifer Higdon, Spencer Topel, Kati Agocs, Ingrid Arauco, Christopher Wendell Jones, Kai-Young Chan, Jeremy Gill, Amadeus Regucera, Michael Harrison, and Cindy Cox. The short film and album, Heard in Havana, was made about historic exchange.

"On Heard from Havana, Third Sound celebrates seventy-eight minutes of great music from ten composers who, in all likelihood, have very different relationships with what it is to be “American.” Right now–especially right now–that’s music worth listening to, and an idea worth appreciating."
