The New York Composers Circle is an organization of composers and performers, dedicated to new music, whose mission is to promote public awareness and appreciation of contemporary music through concerts, salons, and other events in the New York metropolitan area.
For its members, the NYCC offers a variety of opportunities for testing works in progress at monthly salons open to the public, performing completed works in concert, and fostering collaboration and development, both artistic and professional. For composers who are not members, the NYCC offers the opportunity of a public performance for winners of its annual composers’ competition. For the sophisticated concertgoing public, the NYCC offers four concerts a year of members’ works, curated by a jury of members headed by prizewinning composer John Eaton. And for members of the public who have not yet been exposed to much contemporary music, the NYCC sponsors an outreach program, in which we send performers out to various institutions — including high schools and senior centers — at no charge to the institution, to perform works of the 20th and 21st centuries.
