For three weeks we have the great pleasure of having composers Soomin KimKari Watson and Natsumi Osborn, and performers Ellie MacpheeElizabeth Kate and Charlotte Hill, fill the House, Twins and Studios with music, joy and laughter. On January 26th they will indulge us with a concert in the house. We highly recommend you join us! 

KOI Collective was formed in August 2018 by three liked-minded composers from Oberlin Conservatory – Soomin Kim, Kari Watson and Natsumi Osborn – and works to promote and celebrate women, trans and non-binary composers through collaborative projects and community outreach. During their stay at Arts Letters & Numbers, they are working with the Variant Trio, their ensemble in residence, to produce a four-part suite entitled “Impressions of House and Home” for their upcoming KOI concert in March. This collection of pieces stem from themes of home and identity, where they explore the influence of their vastly different cultural backgrounds on their compositions. In addition to Impressions of House and Home, the Variant Trio is learning a piano trio by Amy Beach, one of the first widely recognized American female composers. This ensemble in residence is comprised of three women performers from Oberlin, Ellie Macphee, Elizabeth Kate and Charlotte Hill, all of whom are passionate about performing contemporary repertoire and celebrating music by marginalized voices.
