Beginning in fall 2018, violinist Rebecca Fischer will expand her multidisciplinary collaboration with visual artist Anthony Hawley, The Afield, combining new and original compositions for violin, voice, and electronics with video and other media.
The Afield has commissioned works by composers including Nico Muhly, Paola Prestini, Lisa Bielawa, Augusta Read Thomas and others, and has premiered work at National Sawdust in New York, the HIFA Festival of the Arts in Zimbabwe, and Bay Chamber Concerts in Maine.
The pair have plans to found The Afield School, an organization pioneering interdisciplinary art-making and performance. The school will have a central hub as well as mobile, pop-up locations around the world.
In addition Rebecca looks forward to growing her mentorship of violinists and chamber musicians in her home community and abroad, performing in vibrant solo and chamber music contexts, writing articles and blogs, and spending time with her family.
