NYFOS Next

“Invaluable…a testament to the variety of ways composers today are treating the voice.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES

“a breath of fresh air on the scene of serious vocal music.” — Q ON STAGE

NYFOS Next joins our NYFOS@Home series with a mini-festival of two programs this April! Our previously postponed concerts “Mark Campbell & Friends” and “Laura Karpman & Nora Rosenbaum: And Still We Dream” have been re-imagined for a virtual viewing, including commentary from the creators. 
The concerts are FREE with registration through Eventbrite; donations are welcome.

Mark Campbell: New Works

For the first time in NYFOS Next’s history, an entire program spotlights the work of a lyricist. Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award winning librettist/lyricist Mark Campbell will preview his new work—most of which has not been premiered before—in this virtual concert featuring Olivia Cosio, Jessica Fishenfeld, Joshua Blue and Brian James Myer. In between songs, Steven Blier and music director Danny Zelibor will engage in a lively discussion with Mr. Campbell.
