CQ 2024: Coady Green, Piano at MITU580 (Site)

Friday June 14, 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


ChamberQUEER is thrilled to present Constellation, our 2024 Pride Month celebration of queer community, diversity, and excellence in chamber music! Featuring multiple live performances and workshops every day, ChamberQUEER 2024: Constellation runs Tuesday, June 11 through Sunday, June 16 at MITU580.


Internationally-award-winning concert pianist Coady Green presents a kaleidoscopic and joyous exploration of works by a diverse group of queer living composers. Aside from the evocative, nuanced etudes of Nico Muhly, this program is a celebration and promotion of music from Green’s native Australia, with nearly all the works on the program being US premieres. Featuring Elizabeth van Os on Meta Cohen’s Delphi Songs, the concert also includes premieres by James Rushford and Bryn Renard, along with other repertoire from Green’s years-long history of commissioning new works.


One of Australia’s busiest concert pianists, Coady Green is acknowledged as a major talent on the international concert circuit, described as “a virtuoso pianist with sensitivity, intelligence and charm”, “accurate and exhilarating” (Musical Opinion, London), and with “a strong and versatile technique capable of the most delicate coloring and tonal brilliance, rising to the challenges of extreme virtuoso demands with relish” (The Advertiser, South Australia). Green is committed to the promotion of new Australian music, commissioning several new works from Australian composers each year, and working frequently with emerging and established Australian and international composers. He currently teaches piano and lectures on the performance staff at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne (where he is the Staff Chair of the Pride in Action Network Committee, the main voice for the University for all matters and issues relating to the LGBTIQ+ community), and frequently gives masterclasses within Europe and the USA.

An accomplished ensemble singer, she has sung with Musica Sacra, New York Virtuoso Singers,New York Philharmonic Chorus, and Bard Festival Chorale.
