Welcome to North/South Recordings!
Welcome to North/South Consonance's 36th consecutive season—a season of celebration and discovery!
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, the imposing breadth of North/South events celebrate the astonishing spectrum of creative voices among us while upholding an all-too-rare commitment to artistic innovation.
performed by first-rate musicians feature music by composers representing three generations. Often new to New York, their works always stimulate, challenge and excite.
The ever-expanding North/South Recordings compact
features expert performances of significant compositions, several 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.
our community of friends and patrons as we continue to bring contemporary music from throughout the Americas and the world to the attention of New York City audiences. Your tax-deductible contribution will empower us to proceed vigorously into the next 36 years of musical invention.
Take note, attend our events and discover the dynamism, charisma and brilliance of our outstanding composers and musicians.
