I’m one of the founders (along with composers William Brittelle and Sarah Kirkland Snider) of New Amsterdam Presents, a non-profit presenting organization, and New Amsterdam Records, a subsidiary. Our mission:
New Amsterdam Presents is an artists’ service organization that supports the public’s engagement with new music by composers and performers whose work grows from the fertile ground between genres. New Amsterdam places this music in the public eye through the presentation of festivals, series, tours, and other live events that bring together artists who embody this spirit of openness, grounded in musical traditions of depth and substance, forging new ties between formerly disparate musical languages and approaches to music-making. New Amsterdam Presents also continues to hold New Amsterdam Records as a fully-taxable subsidiary organization, offering new recordings of new classical and jazz works by artists whose individual voices bring together different musical influences from across the spectrum.
