The S.E.M. Ensemble’s initiative to read new works by emerging composers began in 1997 and has continued, every season, to the present. A workshop gives each composer time and space to work directly with musicians and the conductor. The pieces are then given a public performance at Willow Place Auditorium in Brooklyn Heights.
This year’s edition will feature works by composers aged 19 to 32 from across the country: Ian Davis, James Falzone, Anna Heflin, James Ilgenfritz, Simon Kanzler, Alex Ma, and Daniel O’Connor. Their works will be performed by the eleven musicians of the S.E.M. Ensemble and guests, conducted by Petr Kotik.
