A NIGHT OF POLITICALLY CHARGED MUSIC FEATURING NEWSPEAK AND NOW ENSEMBLE

Don't miss this stop on the East Coast tour of music that provokes, informs and inspires. Two of New York's up and coming new music ensembles, NOW and Newspeak, will perform the politically conscious music of Frederick Rzewski, John Halle and Keeril Makan, along with works by Free Speech Zone organizers Judd Greenstein, David Little and Missy Mazzoli. New political film by Alice Lovejoy will accompany the music. Electric guitars and drums meet strings, winds and voices on this moving and original concert, closing with a performance of Rzewski's seminal masterpiece, Coming Together.

Do something positive this Election Day weekend!

Free Speech Zone organizers David, Missy, and Judd have each received significant attention from their peers and from the broader musical community. They have attended such prestigious music schools as Michigan, Yale, and Princeton, and well-known summer festivals such as Tanglewood, Aspen, Fontainebleau, and the Bang on a Can Summer Institute. They have written for a wide variety of players and ensembles including the New York Youth Symphony, Ethel, and the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble. Their works have been performed all over the world, in venues that inclue New York's Carnegie Hall, the Edinburgh Fringe Fest, the Montreal Fringe Fest, and Amsterdam's Gaudeamus New Music Festival.
