"How many concerts
have the narrative
power of exciting
theater?
How
many concerts
offer such a rich
sense of discovering
new and vital music?
This is what we want all
concerts to be, though
we know it rarely
happens. An evening
of discovery and
enchantment,
a
reminder of how
illuminating a journey
a great song can be."

NYFOS Next

A Series for New Songs

The "invaluable contemporary-music series" (The New Yorker) NYFOS Next enters its fifth season and shifts to a new format—a three-concert mini-festival during the month of February. With an emphasis on spontaneity, novelty, and collaboration, NYFOS Next looks to the future, offering today’s song composers a forum for their work. Audiences get an intimate look inside the creative process, as freshly‐minted songs are offered—some for the first time—in an informal setting.
