K-Factor celebrates the musical vision of this global phenomenon, from the orchestral music of the early 1900s to what the New York Times has called the “mainstream avant-garde” in modern K-pop. This engaging program features a 50-piece symphony orchestra performing live in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. The show's curated set of songs has been specifically arranged to capture the sonic detail present in Korean music new and old, showcasing well-known hits by K-pop artists like Blackpink, BTS, EXO, Red Velvet, and Seo Taiji, alongside deeper cuts and transformative songs less familiar to Western audiences. K-Factor provides a fresh way to hear the inventive compositions behind K-pop’s striking music videos and high-polish production.

Performing with The Pittsburgh Collective at ShapeShifter Lab. A little more about the event:
Featuring the east coast (and big band) premier of Long Time Coming, a
piano concerto commissioned through the Barlow Endowment and written for
Lara Downes, along with other originals and arrangements by David Sanford
“To call the Pittsburgh Collective a big band is a bit like calling the New
York Philharmonic an opera outfit…A new kind of fusion is going on in
[their] music, but also, perhaps, a new kind of analysis, in which the
origins of jazz – the fusion music of a century ago – are being creatively
explored” – Paul Griffiths, Miller Theatre
