George Lewis, author

Composer, trombonist, educator and historian George Lewis speaks about his sweeping account of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, and the impact of this organization on his own work over the years. A MacArthur Fellow and Edwin H. Case Professor of American Music at Columbia University, Lewis shares an insider’s perspective on this organization and its ongoing support of experimental music.

Presented in cooperation with The Phillips Collection.
