Merging Politics and Concert Music

Drew Baker Columbia College Lecture

Tomorrow afternoon I will present a talk at Columbia College Chicago on the role of politics in three of my works: National Anthem, Stress Position, and Age of the Deceased (Six Months in Chicago). I will discuss the specific events and conditions that inspired each piece and how the related political considerations influenced the compositional process as well as the listening experience. Admission is free and I hope to see you there!
