New York Philharmonic free event to explore new-music scene in NYC

Posted on: November 5, 2018

The New York Philharmonic’s 2018–19 season of free “Insights at the Atrium” events includes a conversation entitled “New York’s New-Music Landscape” on November 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. Adam Crane, the orchestra’s vice president for external affairs, will moderate a discussion of how new music is adapting to and challenging contemporary culture in New York City. Participants will include composer and violist Nadia Sirota, the Philharmonic’s Marie-Josée Kravis Creative Partner, and bassoonist Rebekah Heller, International Contemporary Ensemble’s co-artistic director. The “Insights” series, which explores themes of the Philharmonic’s concert season, will also include a discussion of New York’s roots as a city of immigrants (January 2019), a conversation between conductor Herbert Blomstedt and New York Philharmonic President and CEO Deborah Borda (February 2019), and a panel of composers and musicians discussing the question of how music can respond to social and political events (June 2019).
