Composers for NYU show

In the midst of preparation for our upcoming show at NYU, I thought I might point you towards the websites of the composers who have written new works for us: Friedrich Heinrich KernWang Jie, Adam Mirza, and Maria Stankova; and a YouTube clip of a piece by Efraín Rozas. It’s always interesting to see how a composer’s vocal works relate to their instrumental writing, and it’s been great to be able to use the internet to find a context for our new pieces.
