Music on the Edge: Now Ensemble

March 23, 2013 - 8:00pm

Music on the Edge and The Andy Warhol Museum present NOW ENSEMBLE, a dynamic group of performers and composers dedicated to making new chamber music for the 21st century. The groundbreaking composer/performer collective will premiere Patrick Burke and Emily Pinkerton’s Rounder Songs and a new work by Mark Dancigers. Also on the program are Sarah Kirkland Snider's Pale as Centuries, Samson Kar-Fai Young's Night Song, and Judd Greenstein's Change Triology.

"NOW... imports a catchy inflection to classical forms... Striking a balance between the old and the new has rarely sounded this good." –Newsweek

With a unique instrumentation of flute, clarinet, electric guitar, double bass, and piano, the ensemble brings a fresh sound and a new perspective to the classical tradition, infused with the musical influences that reflect the diverse backgrounds of its members.
