Hailed as “truly excellent” (The New York Times), New York Baroque Incorporated (NYBI) is a conductorless orchestra of period instruments in New York City, offering vital, informed, and fresh performances of a wide range of 17th- and 18th-century repertoire, as well as creating a vibrant landscape for collaborations between historical performance and living composers.

NYBI has collaborated with renowned soloists including Richard Egarr, Vivica Genaux, Monica Huggett, Jakub Jòzef Orlinski, and has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Morgan Library, Spoleto Festival USA, and Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. Striving to make period instruments a living art form, NYBI has premiered works by Nico Muhly, Hollis Taylor, and Huang Ruo. The orchestra also dedicates itself to bring to life unknown works of the Baroque, and has revived and presented modern-day premieres of Cavalli’s Veremonda (1652), Aliotti’s Santa Rosalia (1687), and Seckendorff’s Proserpina (1777). Last season, NYBI launched the series Alchemy, with each program based on a classical element: water, air, earth, and fire.

Miller Theatre at Columbia University School of the Arts
20th season of Composer Portraits with
CAROLINE SHAW
Thursday, February 6, 2020, 8:00 P.M.
Miller Theatre (2960 Broadway at 116th Street)

Attacca Quartet and So Percussion perform the Pulitzer-winning
star composer's chamber music from the last decade

From Miller Theatre Executive Director Melissa Smey: "A wonderful facet of our Composer Portraits is that we reflect the breadth of creative practice embraced by composers today, and Caroline Shaw does it all: she composes, produces, sings, and plays violin. Here her multiplicity is on display, with a focus on her string quartets, her writing for So Percussion, as well as performing as a singer. Another highlight for me is welcoming back So Percussion to the Miller stage; they were deeply involved in the Composer Portraits series in its formative years, and it will be a welcome homecoming.”

The Maestro Turns 70
The New York Virtuoso Singers’ Second Concert of 2019-20 Season
Friday, January 24, 2020 at 8:00 PM
St. Michael's Episcopal Church, Amsterdam Ave.
Between 99th and 100th St.

The New York Virtuoso Singers, Harold Rosenbaum, Conductor and Artistic Director, will present The Maestro Turns 70, the second event of their 2019-20 concert season, on Friday, January 24, at 8:00 PM at St. Michael's Episcopal Church, Amsterdam Ave. between 99th and 100th St. in Manhattan.
Repertoire will be Abendrot (Adagietto from Mahler’s Symphony No. 5, arr. Clytus Gottwald), Anton Webern’s Entflieht auf leichten Kähnen, Alban Berg’s Die Nachtigall (arr. Clytus Gottwald), Schoenberg’s Friede auf Erden, Luigi Dallapiccola’s Tempus destruendi - Tempus aedificandi, Poulenc’s Figure humaine and contemporary composer and Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lang’s By Fire.
Maestro Rosenbaum has written, "Oh my, I’m turning 70! Recalling the description of expressionism by musicologist Donald J. Grout, I feel isolated and helpless in the grip of forces I do not understand, and I am prey to inner conflict, tension, anxiety, fear, and all the elemental irrational drives of the subconscious, and in irritated rebellion against established order and accepted forms. I may as well embrace this fateful day by conducting some of the most extraordinary, passionate, and emotive expressionist choral pieces in the repertory. I guarantee you will never forget this concert. At the very least, it will be extremely cathartic (for me as well, if I survive it!!)"

Tickets for the January 24 concert are; $30, ($25 when purchased online), $20 for seniors 65+ and $10 for students up to the age 25, available from https://cvi.yapsody.com/event/index/413611/the-maestro-turns-70
