Furman students: Please register using your Furman email address (FirstName.LastName@furman.edu)

Join the Furman Humanities Center, the Furman Music Department, and the Council on Equity & Inclusion in Music for the second event of the Amplify@Furman speaker series, an interview with the Kinds of Kings composer collective.

Founded in 2017, composer collective Kinds of Kings is a group of multifaceted composers committed to building a positive and supportive community around the creation and experience of new music. The collective is focussed on amplifying and advocating for the voices of historically-marginalized people and producing immersive and inclusive work.

For the 2019-2020 season, Kinds of Kings was an Artist-in-Residence at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, New York. Described as, “distinguished young creators who work in diverse styles,” (The New Yorker) the collective’s 2019-2020 concert series, Equilibrium and Disturbance, featured Rubiks Collective (Melbourne, Australia), ~Nois saxophone quartet (Chicago), Isabelle O’Connell (New York), Nouveau Classical Project (New York), and Real Loud (New York). Kinds of Kings has previously had portrait concerts with New York-based chamber groups Metropolis Ensemble and Desdemona Ensemble, the ZAFA Collective in Chicago, and the St Louis Symphony as part of the orchestra’s Pulitzer Series. In 2021 the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Grammy-winning ensemble Eighth Blackbird will premiere a new concerto by the collective.

Kinds of Kings is Gemma Peacocke (New Zealand/Brooklyn NY), Shelley Washington (United States/Princeton NJ), and Maria Kaoutzani (Cyprus/Chicago IL).
