OAC_logo[blue-rgb]Angelique Poteat was selected as a 2015 CityArtist by the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.  The grant will support the creation of a new composition for orchestra with girls’ choir that addresses self-esteem and the influence of popular culture and peer-pressure on teen and pre-teen girls, as expressed by girls in the Seattle community.

This will culminate in a performance of the new work in November 2015 by the Seattle Collaborative Orchestra and the Northwest Girlchoir.  Updates on the project will be posted periodically, so stay tuned!

Poteat’s newest work, Much Difference, commissioned by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra for their Sonic Evolution series, will be premiered by members of the orchestra (Zartouhi Dombourian-Eby, flute; Laura DeLuca, clarinet; Mikhail Shmidt, violin; David Sabee, cello; Michael Werner, percussion; and Kimberly Russ, piano) during their Spring4Music After Hours program at Le Poisson Rouge in New York on May 5, 2014 at 10pm.  The piece is inspired by the music of the Seattle-based group, Pearl Jam, as well as their strong history of activism.
