Local Classical Featured Artist – 01/11/21 – 01/24/21
Nicholas Sokol is a composer, conductor, and pianist specializing in solo, chamber, orchestral, choral, and electronic music. Nicholas’ music has been performed throughout the United States and at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall. His music has been performed by members of the Chicago Civic Orchestra, members of the New World Symphony, the Atlantic Music Festival Orchestra, and the Atlantic Music Festival New Music Ensemble.
Nicholas was also part of Classical Music Indy’s 2020 Micro Composition Project, in which Classical Music Indy commissioned six different Indianapolis-based composers to create new engaging works to disrupt the genre’s traditional listening experience. The composers were commissioned to create a one-movement piece for the Indianapolis-based chamber ensemble Forward Motion. We’ll feature several of his pieces, including the one he wrote for Forward Motion, throughout this week’s programming on Classical Music Indy’s Local Classical Streaming channel.
