New York New Music Ensemble plans Nov. 15 concert at BYU

Featured composer Harvey Sollberger will also give Nov. 17 flute recital

Avid promoters and performers of contemporary concert music, the New York New Music Ensemble will perform at Brigham Young University Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall of the Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are available through the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-4322 or at performances.byu.edu for $7 or $4 with BYU or student ID.

One of the featured composers, Harvey Sollberger, will present a free flute recital Thursday, Nov. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Museum of Art Auditorium.

There will also be a free question-and-answer session and open panel discussion with the visiting artists Thursday, Nov. 17, at 11 a.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

The BYU program will use new music to analyze the interface of music and ethical life.

The group will perform selections by Mario Davidovsky, David Felder and Harvey Sollberger as well as new compositions by Morris Rosenzweig and BYU faculty member Steven Ricks.

Members of the ensemble include Jayn Rosenfeld on flute, Jean Kopperud on clarinet, Linda Quan on violin, Christopher Finckel on cello and guests Christopher Oldfather on piano, Tom Kolor on percussion and James Baker as conductor.

For 29 years, the New York New Music Ensemble has commissioned, performed, recorded, taught and fiercely advocated the music of the current time. Described by the Los Angeles Times as “pulsating with life and timbral excitement,” the group is sought out by composers and audiences who want thoughtful and passionate performances.

With music taken from the 20th and 21st centuries as well as the classics, the ensemble also seeks to use the music of emerging composers and music involving extended instrumental and electronic techniques, theatre, graphics and interactive and live electronics.

For more information, contact Steven Ricks at (801) 422-6115.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation
