Description

Scenes from David T. Little’s new opera JFK (Royce Vavrek, librettist), alongside pieces by Jeff Myers, Ted Hearne, and a NYC premiere by Colin Read. About NYFOS NEXT With an emphasis on spontaneity, novelty, and collaboration, NYFOS Next looks to the future, offering today’s song composers a forum for their work. Audiences get an intimate look inside the creative process, as freshly‐minted songs are offered—some for the first time—in an informal setting. Curator/hosts for past NYFOS Next concerts include Gabriel Kahane, Joseph Thalken, Phil Kline, Carla Kilhstedt, Mohammed Fairouz, Kevin Puts, Russell Platt, Mark Adamo, John Musto, Harold Meltzer, Bright Sheng and Paul Moravec. NYFOS artistic directors Steven Blier and Michael Barrett look to NYFOS Next as an ideal way to preview new compositions and talent for NYFOS’s Mainstage series.
