NYFOS Next looks to the future, opening a forum for the next generation of song composers and interpreters. Now in its tenth season, this “invaluable contemporary-music series” (The New Yorker) takes the longstanding NYFOS tradition of presenting new work, and puts it in the hands of the composers themselves. Each composer becomes a curator, building an hour-long program that features his/her own works and those of colleagues and students. The composer also acts as host of the evening. This approach has allowed NYFOS to expand the perspectives of its two artistic directors, creating room for multifarious approaches to vocal music.

Previous composer/curators have included Mark Adamo, Christopher Cerrone, Mohammed Fairouz, Gabriela Lena Frank, Gabriel Kahane, Laura Kaminsky, Carla Kihlstedt, Phil Kline, Lowell Liebermann, Kyle Jarrow, David T. Little, Harold Meltzer, Paul Moravec, John Musto, Russell Platt, Kevin Puts, Bright Sheng, Kate Soper, and Joseph Thalken.
