Founded in 2010, The Fourth Wall has been inspiring and delighting audiences all over the country with their hybrid arts performances. In August of 2010, The Fourth Wall was a featured ensemble at the National Flute Association’s Annual Convention, including a performance at the Gala Concert honoring Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Leone Buyse and Fenwick Smith. The ensemble is delighted to be performing at the 2012 NFA Convention on the closing Gala Concert and the recital honoring this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, Bonita Boyd in addition to their own recital.
In the spirit of collaboration and to promote new music, The Fourth Wall performed the inaugural concert of the Boston Composers’ Coalition – a collaborative organization dedicated to the creation, performance, education and dissemination of new American music. Each of the six composers in the core group plus a student composer wrote a new piece especially for The Fourth Wall, which was then performed at several venues in the Boston area and was broadcast on a live feed on the internet.
As strong advocates of education, The Fourth Wall also offers workshops that teach students how to incorporate interdisciplinary performance techniques into their performances. Members of The Fourth Wall have shared their work with students of the Boston University Academy, Houston Youth Symphony, Texas State University (San Marcos), University of Houston, Indiana University, New York University, The Eastman School of Music, Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, the Manhattan School of Music, the New York Percussive Arts Society, the Flute Society of Kentucky and the Indiana Percussive Arts Society.
The Fourth Wall continues their professional development in music, theatre and dance through involvement with The Windfall Dance Company (Bloomington, IN), The Indianapolis Ceili (Irish) Band, The Bloomington Playwright’s Project and several regional orchestras in the Indiana and Kentucky region.
