Dear NYCC Community,
This is to announce the Program Committee’s approved works for performance during the NYCC’s 2010-2011 season, it’s ninth consecutive season of public concerts.
After examining all of the works submitted for next season, the Program Committee determined that all were acceptable and suitable for performance and programming at the NYCC’s record fourth season of four public concerts.
Shown below are the final selected compositions with their instrumentations.
In all, 26 works by NYCC Composer Members, Honorary Members, and our annual Composition Competition winner, will be performed at public concerts next season, in addition to which will be other works (not yet determined), included as part of our Community Encores outreach recital series.
This demonstrates yet again how and the extent to which the NYCC provides continuing annual opportunities for its members to have their work publicly presented.
As always, many thanks are due to our fellow members (several of them new this round) who served on the Program Committee, chaired by Honorary Member John Eaton, for performing this indispensable function for our organization.
Yours in music,
John de Clef Piñeiro
NYCC Executive Director
