About New York New Music Ensemble 

Since 1976, the New York New Music Ensemble has commissioned, performed, and recorded the important and upcoming composers of our time. Such organizations as the Jerome, Fromm, Mellon, and Koussevitzky Foundations; the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust; NEA, and NYSCA, among others have recognized and supported the ensemble. They have performed innumerable college residencies (Long Beach, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Pittsburgh), appeared at major festivals (Ravinia, Santa Fe, June in Buffalo, Pacific Rim, The Thailand International Composers Festival), and recorded an extensive discography of important chamber works. They have traveled to Europe, Asia, and South America to perform, teach, and record, and branched out into theatre music and adventuresome electronic, interactive new technologies.
