In the spirit of Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge’s intrepid support of new music, the Library of Congress is pleased to celebrate the birthday of the founder of its historic concert series with a twist on the usual format.

This year’s Founder’s Day concert features an inaugural set of “Piece Offerings: Focused Encounters with Recent Works,” where audiences will hear a single work or portion of a work, followed by an onstage discussion with its creators. Composers Roger Reynolds and Kate Soper will be joined by pianist Eric Huebner, computer musician Jacob Sundstrom and the Wet Ink Ensemble for this novel experience, with a special start time of 7 p.m.

There will be no pre-concert talk, as conversations with the artists will be part of the concert experience.
