HEAR NOW 2017 will take place on the 28th, 29th, and 30th of April.
The 2017 Hear Now Music Festival is dedicated to Jeffrey Kahane for his outstanding support of Los Angeles composers.
We are very pleased to announce that HEAR NOW will be continuing its collaborations with both PEOPLE INSIDE ELECTRONICS and THE LOS ANGELES CHAMBER ORCHESTRA.
HEAR NOW grows to LACC, Chapman, & CSU Dominguez Hills
The weekend following HEAR NOW 2017, thanks to grants from the NEA, LA County and the city of Los Angeles, a longtime goal of the HEAR NOW Music Festival will be realized: HEAR NOW will repeat festival concerts at other venues in LA County.
Extending the reach of the wildly innovative music being created in Los Angeles, on the weekend of May 5-7, concerts from HEAR NOW 2017 will be performed at Los Angeles City College, Chapman University and CSU Dominguez Hills.
HEAR NOW Paris
However, the reach of HEAR NOW is being extended even FURTHER! On December, 2nd, 3rd and 4th HEAR NOW / Paris will take place at the Mona Bismarck American Center in Paris, France.
Pianist extraordinaire, Mark Robson, will come from LA to perform piano solos by William Kraft and Anne LeBaron. Mark, with bass baritone, Nicholas Isherwood, will also perform Jeffrey Holmes’ URDARMANA, and, with LA virtuoso cellist, Cecilia Tsan, Mark will perform Thomas Ades’ LIEUX RETROUVES.
The world renowned Diotima String Quartet, Suzana Bartal, and the very finest French musicians will perform the music of Los Angeles composers in a festival curated by HEAR NOW’s Artistic Director, Hugh Levick.
We are very pleased to announce that composer Jason Heath has become, along with Gernot Wolfgang, Associate Artistic Director of HEAR NOW.
We welcome another amazing composer—Adam Borecki—who has joined HEAR NOW as webmaster and Millenial Outreach Director.
Please stay tuned for the HEAR NOW 2017 programs which will be announced by mid-November, 2016.
