Since 1976, the New York New Music Ensemble has commissioned, performed and recorded the important and upcoming composers of our time. They have in fact been the means by which many of these have become more known and appreciated. NYNME has been recognized and supported by all the significant American foundations, including the Jerome Foundation, the Fromm Foundation at Harvard, the Mary Flagler Cary Foundation, the Mellon Foundation, the Koussevitzky Foundation, the NEA and NYSCA, among others. They have performed innumerable college residencies (Long Beach, UW Madison, Univ. of Pittsburgh, etc.), appeared at major festivals (Ravinia, Santa Fe, June in Buffalo, Pacific Rim, The Thailand International Composers Festival, etc.), and have recorded a huge discography of important chamber works. They have traveled to Europe, Asia, and South America to perform, teach and record, and have branched out into theatre music (instrumentalists doubling as actors and singers) and adventuresome electronic, interactive new technologies.
