Music in Color: Eleanor Alberga 

OSL presents free concerts throughout New York City to engage new audiences with classical music through dynamic concerts and multidisciplinary programs designed to be as entertaining as they are educational.

OSL’s 2019 Music in Color program spotlights the life, music, and continually evolving career of of Jamaican composer Eleanor Alberga. Born in Kingston and educated at the Royal Academy of Music, Alberga is a prolific composer in nearly every genre, from opera and choral works to pieces for both chamber ensembles and full orchestras. Her works are commonly played throughout the UK and Europe, with performances and recordings by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, among others. Music in Color: The Music of Eleanor Alberga is the touchstone of OSL’s 2019 Free Community Concerts series, and will  include Jamaican Medley and the North American premiere of Alberga’s Shining Gate of Morpheus for horn and string quartet.
