The Next Festival of Emerging Artists
Founded in 2013 by Artistic Director and composer Peter Askim, The Next Festival of Emerging Artists is an immersive residency for young (20-30 years old) professional string players focused on musical exploration, entrepreneurial thinking, and contemporary performance practice. The sixth annual festival takes place May 27- June 9. After a week at Music Mountain in Falls Village, CT, the festival moves to NYC.
The festival returns to NYC for the fifth consecutive summer for a series of events in early June. On June 3 at (le) poisson rouge the orchestra is joined by soprano Tony Arnold performing in the world premiere orchestral version of Brett Dean's 'And Once I Played Ophelia'. Hailed by the New York Times as “a bold, powerful interpreter,” Ms. Arnold is internationally acclaimed as a leading proponent of contemporary music. New music by Jessica Meyer, Liisa Hirsch, and Peter Askim will also be performed.
