Videos! Here’s what’s in the works-

We are very pleased to share the product of our first efforts with our composers. If you visit our YouTube channel, you can watch the recordings of all the individual pieces that were performed on April 8th at Columbia University. 

Our next event, Jonah Murphy’s solo flute recital, will have similar such coverage, so rest assured that all of the music that we make, will be shared with everyone regardless if they are or aren’t in New York City to see the concert! 

 

April Update and Celebration!

Hello again!

Thank you to all the composers who supported and received our first event so warmly. If you haven’t already done so, please listen to the full concert here:

We are pleased to share that we have three new Featured Artists listed, and encourage you to introduce yourselves to them on the Apply page! Jonah Murphy is a flutist, Jeffery Kautz is a solo timpanist and percussionist, and the Bowery Trio is a fantastic chamber ensemble consisting of clarinet, cello, and piano. 

I hope you are looking forward, like I am, to all the music that will be made because of the enthusiasm of all the musicians involved in submitting and performing this slew of new works being written for this event. 

Each event going forward will be a celebration of the creative energies being put on display by all of you!
