MEET THE COMPOSER
Annika Socolofsky (1990, Edinburgh) is a composer, avant-folk vocalist, and fiddler. Her music stems from the timbral nuance and inwards resonance of the human voice, and is communicated through mediums ranging from orchestral works to unaccompanied folk ballads.
Annika is a recipient of a 2014 Fromm Foundation Commission and a BMI Student Composer Award. She is a Mark Nelson Doctoral Fellow in composition at Princeton University.
MEET THE COLLABORATING ARTS PARTNER
ERIE CANAL FACT:
When "Clinton's Ditch" opened in 1825, Schenectady officials opted to not celebrate its Grand Opening out of fear it would take away business from their profitable ports along the Mohawk River. The Erie Canal later helped Schenectady earn the reputation of being "the city that lights and hauls the world."
