Christopher Adler Stays Connected with Online Performances, Album Release

During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, Professor Christopher Adler has stayed connected with audiences through a series of online performances.

One series, Solos: Three for Khaen, focuses on new pieces written for the khaen, a Lao/Northeast Thai bamboo free-reed mouth organ. You can view videos of these livestreamed performances at the links below:

Solos: Three for Khaen #4
Solos: Three for Kahen #3
Solos: Three for Khaen #2
Solos: Three for Khaen #1

Professor Adler also produced a livestreamed house concert for harpsichord, performing on a harpsichord that belongs to fellow Music faculty member, Marianne Pfau. This concert, L'Anachroniste, blended repertoire from Baroque and Contemporary composers.

You can also still check out Dr. Adler's contributions to Synchromy's Urban Birds Project! This exciting project is bringing together composers and performers to feature original compositions about Southern California's common urban birds. Click on the birds on the map to hear the performances. You'll find Dr. Adler's solo bassoon composition The Ash-throated Flycatcher (on the upper-left, by the Scrub Jay Trail), and you can also find Christopher performing Vera Ivanova's portrait of the Northern Mockingbird (middle right on the map). 

Finally, you can hear Christopher's composition Jolie Sphinx on an upcoming CD release by violinist Michi Wiancko. The release date is set for Sept. 18 and the pre-order site is already up: https://michiwiancko.bandcamp.com/album/planetary-candidate

We hope you can take a moment to stay connected with Dr. Adler's music!
