Happy Holidays from Composers Concordance! This fall alone, we presented eight concerts, at William Paterson University's Shea Auditorium, West Park Presbyterian Church, Spectrum NYC, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Kostabi World Uptown, Goddard Riverside, and Fort Washington Collegiate Church. Among the 72 original compositions performed were numerous new works for chamber groups, orchestra, electric instruments, world instruments, and multimedia, as part of the inclusionary mix that NYC audiences have come to associate with our unique series and record label.
Many exciting concerts are planned for this spring, including our 6th annual festival: 'New York / New Music.' Next up, we return to (Le) Poisson Rouge on January 26th, to present the string quartet ETHEL and the percussion ensemble TALUJON, in a program entitled 'RoundTable.'
We hope that you'll consider a tax-deductible donation to Composers Concordance today, so that we can continue bringing such varied and exciting programming to you in future seasons! It's easy to donate by PayPal or by mail. In addition, we look forward to hearing from you soon. We enjoy corresponding with artists and audiences, and always appreciate constructive feedback on our events and recordings!
