SONiC launches with a nod to every American composers’ spiritual father: Aaron Copland. Featuring an array of young composers—all participants in Copland House’s CULTIVATE national fellowship program for emerging professional composers—in an eclectic selection of new works for mixed chamber music ensemble.
Music from Copland House is the acclaimed resident ensemble at the award-winning creative center for American music at Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home in Westchester County, NY. Hailed by The New York Times for performances that are “bracing, beguiling, and incisive,” MCH occupies a special place on the U.S. musical scene for its exclusive focus on 150 years of America’s rich musical landscape. The ensemble has been engaged by Carnegie Hall, the Library of Congress, Miller Theatre, Monday Evening Concerts in Los Angeles, the Bard, Cape Cod, Caramoor and Ecstatic Music Festivals, and many other leading presenters in the U.S. and Mexico. MCH has collaborated with NPR and Euro-Radio on a special concert of American music aired in over 20 countries, records for the Arabesque, Koch International, and Copland House Blend labels, and is regularly featured on Copland House’s popular main-stage series at the historic Merestead estate in Mount Kisco, NY. www.coplandhouse.org
