Welcome to North/South Recordings!
You are cordially invited to experience the musical magic of the 40th season of North/South Consonance.
During the early autumn days of 1980, a dazzling group of musicians came together to perform the first North/South Chamber Orchestra concert. The musical values cherished in those early days – flexibility, intimacy, commitment to the community and above all, consummate artistry – continue to inform and impel this remarkable ensemble.
In a culture overwhelmed by mere entertainment, the imposing breadth of North/South events celebrates the astonishing spectrum of creative voices among us while upholding an all-too-rare commitment to artistic innovation.
Our free-admission concerts
are peppered with lively commentary designed to enhance your listening experience. Performed by superb vocalists and musicians, our inventive programs showcase music by three generations of composers hailing from throughout the Americas and the world. Often new to New York, their refreshingly accessible music never fails to stimulate, challenge and excite.
The ever-expanding North/South Recordings Catalogue
embodies a substantial musical legacy. Featuring expert performances of today's repertoire these compact discs offer scholars an invaluable window into the musical world of the 20th and 21st centuries. Available for streaming and sale through your favorite retail outlet, these albums bring the music of composers we champion to an international audience and the convenience of your home.
The thoughtfulness of friends and patrons has allowed us to bring the best in contemporary music to New York City audiences. Your charitable tax-deductible contribution
will empower us to keep supporting creativity and innovation. Your generous gift will help us proceed vigorously into the next 40 years of musical discovery.
Take note of the virtuosic North/South Chamber Orchestra. Be present at its events. Let yourself be swayed by the allure, drama and energy of today’s music.
