"it’s the heir to a long tradition of thinking of music in terms of slowly shifting patterns, made out of simple things."

Why everyone is wrong about minimalism - Telegraph
Despite its many critics, minimalism is still a triumphant force in classical music, says Ivan Hewett

New York (AFP) - Alisa Weilerstein built a reputation as a premier cellist playing an instrument that would be considered top-notch by any standard. But recently, she has found one to top it.

About Us

Founded in Baltimore in 2014, Symphony Number One is the East Coast’s newest chamber orchestra. Led by Music Director +Jordan Randall Smith, +Symphony Number One will offer a unique and innovative model for presenting new music by bringing together great composers of the past, virtuoso performers of the present, and the leading compositional voices of the future.

With your help, Symphony Number One will challenge tired programming models. The programs will juxtapose new compositions with repertoire from the classical canon. These programs will also serve a larger mission: provide similar grassroots ensembles with exciting programs to re-invigorate the American classical landscape.

In a time where arts organizations struggle to find their way, Symphony Number One invites you to participate in an alternative business model. In our model, the musicians are central to both the music-making and the organization. This is not only a more artistically pure way to design thrilling performances, it’s a more economical structure as well.

New York City Opera's Name and Other Assets Attract Suitors
New York Times -

What should happen next to City Opera, which presented its last production, “Anna Nicole,” in September 2013 and filed for bankruptcy the next month, is a vexing question that has divided local opera lovers, opera singers, musicians and even unions ...
Bids, and a possible auction, for the opera’s remaining assets are set for next month.
