The artistry of Nicole Mitchell is wide-ranging—a virtuosic flutist, acclaimed bandleader, noted educator, and the first woman president of Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). An award-winning composer, her music defies classification and celebrates contemporary African American culture. International Contemporary Ensemble performs a selection of her work from the past decade, featuring the composer as flutist.
