Announcing: A Brand New Listening Station!

Dear Friends and Cohorts of NewMusicWorks:

Beautifully captured audio recordings of NewMusicWorks’ “Night of the Living Composers” concert on February 8, 2020 are now uploaded. 

Tune in to our New Listening Station

The recordings are superbly engineered by Barry Phillips and the performances are diversely thrilling and beautiful.

This final NMW performance prior to the onset of Covid19 marked our 23rd installment of “Night of the Living Composers” concerts; the first of which was given in 1987.

The audio recordings are paired with a fantastic photo-diorama of performance and rehearsal photos taken by eagle- eye photographer, Daev Roehr.

Enjoy the music,
Phil Collins, Executive Artistic Director
