Upcoming Events

The Hayley-Laufer Duo returns with a second concert collecting revolutionary contributions to the 21-century art song repertoire. Premieres by Colombian composer Camilo Méndez, Venezuelan composer Freddy Flores Ávila, and Canadian composer Anthony Tan explore the outer reaches of the technical and expressive possibilities of the Lied genre. The program also features Jonathan Harvey’s monumental and mesmerizing Nachtlied, alongside newly minted works for soprano and piano by UB student composers Ka Shu (Kenneth) Tam and Roberto Azaretto.
Joshua G. Stein's ceremic sclupture piece entitled "Isochronic Mountains" will installed on the observation deck of Buffalo City Hall in Spring 2019. This piece, created during Stein's Fall 2017 CAI residency, renders data on the travel times to downtown Buffalo from the surrounding areas via public transportation into a three-dimensional map of the city. 



The CAI accepts proposals for residencies for sessions from as short as a few days up to four months. All fields of creative art are eligible to participate. Both emerging artists and established artists are invited to participate. Companies and collaborating artists may apply.
