This concert is part of the Composers Now Festival.

Composers Now celebrates and honors living composers, the diversity of their voices and the significance of their contributions to the cultural fabric of our society.

The Festival brings together performances presented by venues, ensembles, orchestra, opera, musical theater and dance companies as well as many other innovative events through New York City. Composers are in attendance at all events which are open to the public. From jazz to indie, from classical to electronic and beyond, join Composers Now on a sonic journey through the landscape of the arts of our time.
