Claire Chase has reimagined the repertoire for the flute for over 23 years, proving that difficult music can delight. She is a soloist, collaborative artist, curator and advocate for new and experimental music. Over the past decade she has given the world premieres of hundreds of new works for the flute in performances throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, and she has championed new music throughout the world by building organizations, forming alliances, pioneering commissioning initiatives and supporting educational programs that reach new audiences. She was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2012, and in 2017 was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize. Her Princeton debut will feature the latest installation of her Density 2036 project. PAN is a 90-minute musical drama for solo flute, live electronics, and an ensemble of community musicians.
