Join us in honoring pianist Kathleen Supove and Creative Director Simon Collins with the NCP Visionary Award. This award recognizes innovative leaders whose work has made a significant impact in their fields. The evening will feature NCP playing music by living composers, fine food and drink, silent auction, and the presentation of the NCP Visionary Award. Your purchase of a ticket or table will directly fund the truly extraordinary line-up of projects that we have in the works for the coming season and support the artists for whom we provide valuable opportunities.
2015-16 is our seventh season, and it's going to be an exciting one: we're going on tour with DJ Spooky to premiere and perform his new Peace Symphony in four US cities, and next summer we are mounting our largest project thus far: Mysterium Novum, a music and art installation with artist Anne Patterson and composer Paul Haas.
About The Nouveau Classical Project
The Nouveau Classical Project (NCP) is a New York-based contemporary classical music ensemble that is "bringing a refreshing edge to the widely conservative genre" (VICE). It began by collaborating with fashion designers for its concerts and has expanded to creating multidisciplinary performances. Its mission is to engage new audiences and show that classical music is a living, breathing art form.
To provide opportunities for composers, NCP holds annual Calls for Scores, Calls for Proposals, and commissions new work via the NCP Commissioning Fund. The collaborative nature of its work also allows the ensemble to create opportunities for artists from a variety of disciplines.
NCP has performed at exciting venues such as Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Fisher, (le) poisson rouge, Galapagos Art Space, Symphony Space, The Center for Fiction, and Issue Project Room as part of MATA’s Interval series. Fashion shows include CFDA winner Pamela Love, Project Runway winner Gretchen Jones, Kempner Collection, Ecco Domani winner Novis, Tanya Taylor, and more. Its projects are supported by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), and other generous foundations and individual donors.
