Description:
LATITUDE 49 absolutely LOVES working with composers to create new music, but 2020 has been really difficult. Without live concerts and the ability to travel to be together, we have each found ourselves alone and in search of ways to foster artistic connection and to respond to the injustices we see in the world and in the arts.

The Bagatelles Project is a response to that. Each of our six musicians contacted a variety of composers and asked them to write a brief Bagatelle for their solo instrument. All artistic ideas were left up to the composers besides the time-limit. Two digital concerts featured the world premiere performances of all the Bagatelles on Mar. 5 and Mar 19, 2021. The bandcamp album was released on Mar. 19, 2021.

We have dedicated this entire project to support an organization we love, the Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts (CAAPA). All proceeds given to Latitude 49 during the premiere performances and through the purchase of the Bagatelles album will be given 100% in perpetuity to this wonderful organization. You can learn more about the wonderful mission and ethos of that organization through their website:
4caapa.org

We encourage you to listen, enjoy, and purchase the album to support our work in building greater equity and diversity in the arts.
