"How many concerts
have the narrative
power of exciting
theater?
How
many concerts
offer such a rich
sense of discovering
new and vital music?
This is what we want all
concerts to be, though
we know it rarely
happens. An evening
of discovery and
enchantment,
a
reminder of how
illuminating a journey
a great song can be."

NYFOS Next

A Festival for New Songs

Presented by National Sawdust and New York Festival of Song

“a breath of fresh air on the scene of serious vocal music." — Q ON STAGE

NYFOS Next looks to the future, opening a forum for the next generation of song composers and interpreters. Now in its seventh season, this "invaluable contemporary-music series" (The New Yorker) takes the longstanding NYFOS tradition of presenting new work, and puts it in the hands of the composers themselves. Each composer becomes a curator, building an hour-long program that features his/her own works and those of colleagues and students. The composer also acts as host of the evening. This approach has allowed NYFOS to expand the perspectives of its two Artistic Directors, creating room for multifarious approaches to vocal music.
