The concerts will feature a diverse array of styles, highlighting the youth of the composers and the diversity of their reactions in assimilating music from around the globe. Together, these works represent a brave new world of hemispheric creativity, and work to significantly expand the boundaries of North American music. Each concert will feature a world premiere written for NYNME, by the first by Ezequiel Viñao and the second by Michele Galante.
