Welcome to North/South Recordings!
Welcome to North/South Consonance's thirty-fifth consecutive season!
During the early autumn days of 1980, a group of astonishing musicians came together to perform the first North/South Chamber Orchestra concert. While much has changed over 35 years, the values held in those early days—flexibility, intimacy, commitment to the community, and consummate artistry—continue to propel this amazing ensemble.
In a culture overwhelmed by mere entertainment, North/South concerts celebrate the remarkable spectrum of artistic voices among us while upholding an all-too-rare commitment to artistic discovery and innovation. Our
performed by first-rate artists focus on emerging and established composers whose works, often new to New York, always stimulate, challenge and excite.
North/South's ever-expanding compact
features expert performances of significant compositions, some written especially for the North/South Chamber Orchestra. These albums bring the music of composers we champion to an international audience and the convenience of your home.
join our efforts
to bring contemporary music from throughout the Americas and the world to the attention of New York City audiences. Your tax-deductible contribution will enable us to advance vigorously into the next 35 years of musical innovation.
You will be delighted, intrigued and just plain happy that you attended one of our events.
