On Tuesday evening June 10, the North/South Consonance Ensemble under the direction of Max Lifchitz will present a special concert featuring premieres of recent works for large mixed ensembles by composers hailing from Australia, China and the US.
The event – part of the 34th consecutive season of free-admission concerts sponsored by North/South Consonance, Inc –will start at 8 PM and end approximately at 9:30 PM. It will be held at the intimate but acoustically superior auditorium of Christ & St Stephen’s Church (120 West 69th St – between Broadway and Columbus) on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The auditorium is ADA accessible. Admission is free – no tickets needed.

The exciting program will feature premieres of works by the Brooklyn-based saxophonist/composer Daniel Blake and the Minneapolis-based Carleton Macy the Carleton College faculty member.

It will also introduce New York audiences to the music of Australian composer May Howlett and Hong Kong based Wong Chun-Wai. A work by Max Lifchitz — the Mexican-born musician who is the ensemble’s director – will round off the program.

Soloist for the occasion will be Laura Nichols, the Minneapolis based mezzo-soprano and dedicatee of Macy’s work.

The composers will be present at the concert to introduce their works and meet with the audience.

Performers and composers are available for media events and interviews and may be contacted through the North/South Office at ns.concerts@att.net.
