Composers Concordance presents its 7th Annual Festival, entitled 'Art of Sound.' Inspired by contemporary art in NYC, the festival consists of five concerts, to be held at a wide array of venues.
Part of Composers Concordance's mission in recent seasons has been to return attention to composers who perform their own music. Our 9th Annual Comp-Play-Comp Marathon features no fewer than 25 art-inspired pieces performed by the composers themselves. An eclectic array of styles and composition approaches will be presented on a program including: David Saperstein, Joe Pehrson, Carolyn Steinberg, Jay Rodriguez, Machiko Ozawa, Angela Babin, Howie Kenty, Andrew Violette, Peter Jarvis, Richard Sussman, Hye-Jeung Kang, Daniel Palkowski, Melissa Grey, Svjetlana Bukvich, Nicole Brancato, Dan Cooper, Gene Pritsker, Joe Fee, Jane Getter, Dick Griffin, Laurence Goldman, Lori Bingel, Audible Abstraction Trio, Gregory Hammontree, Barry Hartlgass, David Morneau, Roger Tréfousse, Stefan Zeniuk, Sean Satin, Seth Boustead, Volodymyr Bedzvin, Emily Searles.
Composers Concordance's 7th Annual Festival is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement / Creative Learning, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. LMCC.net
Staying in rotation for 33 years in NYC is a rare feat. In the case of a new music presenting organization, it requires not only diligence and cognizance of achievements of the past, but also an ethic of keeping one's ear to the ground for emerging stylistic and technological developments, as well as talented new composers on the scene. Composers Concordance strives to present contemporary music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. It has also created a record label, Composers Concordance Records, with distribution by Naxos. Directors Gene Pritsker and Dan Cooper co-curate the programs, and lead the CompCord Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, String Orchestra, and Big Band. Associate Directors are Milica Paranosic, Peter Jarvis, Svjetlana Bukvich, and Melissa Grey. Composers Concordance's overriding vision is to promote contemporary music, composers, and new works as a rightful and respected part of society. Good music, performed and recorded well, pushing the boundaries of sound and composition.
"For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label." -The Wall Street Journal. "Enterprising new music organization" -The New York Times. "The Composers Concordance folks are unpredictable and at times refreshingly irreverent in a reverent sort of way....ingenious fun" -Classical-Modern Music Review. "Edgy...boisterous...demanding our attention" -San Diego Story. "These men and women are creating exciting music with elements of jazz, world music and many experimental techniques blended with equal parts classical tradition and playing techniques." -Asbury Park Press. "There is considerable evidence to show that Composers Concordance may be one of the most exciting labels in American contemporary music." -JazzdaGama.

Dance at its most glam-o-rock-ous!
A full-throttle evening of entertainment that combines the artistry and beauty of dance with the power of the world’s most innovative popular rock icons who defined an epoch and became fixtures in American pop culture. Bowie is enigmatic. Queen is killer. S&R Foundation is proud to collaborate with The Washington Ballet in Bowie & Queen, which will feature S&R Artist-in-Residence, violinist Machiko Ozawa.
Trey McIntyre has electrified the ballet world by breaking the boundaries of contemporary ballet just as Freddie Mercury and Queen pushed the limits of musical performance. This virtuosic and wildly popular piece features both tap dance and ballet while contributing a new dimension to the familiar and beloved music of Freddie Mercury and Queen.
Choreography: Trey McIntyre
Dancing In the Street
Rounding out the program is a celebration of dance as a company premiere choreographed by Edwaard Liang and set to selections of music composed by Gabriel Gaffney Smith intermixed with selections from rock legend David Bowie.
Liang explores the irresistible energy that attracts people to dance using music from the quieter phases of David Bowie’s career with an arc that culminates in his spirited “Dancing In the Street” duet with Mick Jagger. He takes a Pan-like character who is garnering the courage to talk to a girl to reveal the communal power of dance to attract and liberate passersby. This is the fifth TWB commission with Liang.
Music: David Bowie, Gabriel Gaffney Smith
Violin: Machiko Ozawa
Choreography: Edwaard Liang
