Music Series Curator
Wil founded, curated and co-directed the Music at First Series from 2009-2014 with Meg Wilhoite at First Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn.
Music at First is a new music series that presents a diverse mix of performers, ensembles and artists who primarily perform music either written by or for them, or by composers with whom they have a close collaborative relationship. Among more traditional recitals, the series has presented premiere performances of video operas, large-scale oratorios, sound installations, and electroacoustic and multimedia works.
