NewMusicShelf and Black Tea Music present an evening of new art song for tenor and piano.
Come hear tenor Dennis Tobenski and pianist Trudy Chan perform art songs collected in the tenor volume of NewMusicShelf's Anthology of New Music, published in September 2018, and afterward meet some of the composers involved in this project!
Featuring art songs by: Paul Ayres, Chester Biscardi, Clint Borzoni, Steven Burke, Daniel Gilliam, Juliana Hall, Drew Hemenger, Garrett Hope, Rory Johnston, David Leisner, Lisa Neher, Frank J. Oteri, Gabrielle Owens, Darien Shulman, Dennis Tobenski, Craig Urquhart, Philip Wharton, Scott Wheeler, David Wolfson, and Roger Zahab.
The NewMusicShelf Anthologies of New Music are a bold, new publishing initiative aimed at bringing new and unknown composers and repertoire to student and professional performers alike. With an emphasis on works not found in the traditional publishing ecosystem, each volume is curated by performers who have a reputation for championing new music, with an eye toward selecting works with a range of styles and difficulties that are suitable for concert and recital performance.
With this innovative mode of publishing, NewMusicShelf advocates for self-published composers in a way previously unheard of in the realm of classical music: all self-published composers retain full ownership of their work while earning a generous royalty on every sale.
