13th Annual
Comp-Play-Comp Marathon
‘Name Dropping’


Sunday, May 21st at 6pm

85 Avenue A NYC

Composers Concordance presents its 11th annual festival, entitled ‘What’s In a Name?’. Four concert programs feature new music compositions inspired by names of fictitious characters, names that are dear to individual composers, and nicknames, plus a concert of 26 composers presented alphabetically by a trio of musicians named Jay, and other imaginative ways composers choose to play upon the event titles and festival theme. The concerts will be presented at an array of NYC venues, with numerous fun premieres, virtuoso performances, and an eclectic range of styles, presented in quick tandem, encouraging our favorite composers to play on the phenomenon of names.
