“The Mission: New Conductors, New Composers”
The New Conductors Orchestra (www.neweconductorsorchestra.org) will be presenting concerts on Sat. Feb. 11th (8 PM) and Sun. Feb. 12th (6 PM) . This concert series reflects our goals of providing opportunities for emerging conducting talent and featuring the works of up-and-coming contemporary composers. In addition to works by John WIlliams and David Diamond, we will present New York premieres (and one U.S. premiere) of pieces by Peter Longworth, Katherine Saxon, Michael Rosin, Sam Wu and Daniel Godsil, selected from several hundred works submitted from around the world in response to our “call for scores.” At the podium will be Dr. Iantheia Calhoun, Andrew A. Hill, Eric Juneau and Dr. Mark Powell.
