Email share


Described as “an astoundingly virtuosic guitar player… and far more importantly a thoughtful and original composer,” Andrew McKenna Lee’s music has been commissioned by some of the world’s leading ensembles and organizations. The Dogs of Desire commissioned his new work, Black Pool, which they will premiere Friday night, June 2, 2017 at EMPAC, part of this year’s American Music Festival. The following night, after the orchestra’s concert at EMPAC, he will give a solo recital of his own music and Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint.
