21c Liederabend, op. 3 / Festival of Contemporary Art Song

Creative direction by Beth Morrison and Paola Prestini
Music direction by Julian Wachner
Featuring NOVUS NY, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and New York's finest solo singers

Program 1—Friday night (see below for lineup)
Program 2—Saturday night (see below for lineup)

The art-song recital is given fresh new life in the 21c Liederabend festival. Over the course of two evenings—with each featuring a distinct, dynamic program—video artists and lighting designers are paired with luminaries from the New York and international new-music scenes.
                           
Boasting 9 world premieres, the festival—which played to sold-out audiences in its last two incarnations—showcases performances by NOVUS NY, the Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and a host of top soloists. The Friday lineup (Program 1) includes songs by Missy Mazzoli, Ted Hearne, Mohammed Fairouz, David T. Little, Marie Incontrera, Eric Whitacre, Tod Machover, and more. On Saturday (Program 2), hear Anna Clyne’s commissioned vocal work The Lost Thought; Judd Greenstein’s My City: Mannahatta,  featuring animation by Joshua Frankel; Paola Prestini’s Hubble Cantata; works by Nico Muhly and Julian Wachner; and much more. Full lineups listed below.
