Sound and stimulation are set to “on” at this new-music series at The Appel Room, overlooking Central Park. The series continues with Philharmonic musicians joining vocalists in World Premieres by Joan La Barbara, Nicole Lizée, and Paola Prestini — commissioned by the Philharmonic as part of Project 19 — alongside works by Crumb and Berio in a concert hosted and curated by Nadia Sirota, Creative Partner.
Project 19 is a multiyear New York Philharmonic initiative that features commissions by 19 women composers in honor of the centennial of the 19th Amendment.
