Face the Music performs "Closing" by Philip Glass at The Tank, Thursday April 5 2012
Conducted by Jenny Undercofler
The only youth ensemble in the U.S. dedicated to studying and performing music by living composers, Kaufman Music Center’s 200+ member Face the Music has taken its place as a full-fledged player in New York City’s vibrant contemporary classical scene, rapidly becoming what The New York Times has called “a force in the New York new-music world.” NYC’s favorite youth new music ensemble performs at venues across the city and beyond, including Merkin Concert Hall, Carnegie Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, BAMcafé, Queens Museum, Roulette and WNYC’s The Greene Space. Face the Music is the only youth group among the Legacy Partners for Kronos Quartet’s exciting new commissioning initiative “Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire.” The recipient of an ASCAP Aaron Copland Award, Face the Music has been featured in Chamber Music Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily News and on NPR’s “All Things Considered.”
