An Afternoon of Music by Jewish Composers

Performed by Members of Ensemble for These Times

Works by Grammy-nominated composer Derek Bermel, Kurt Weill, David Garner, Gyorgy Justus and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco will be performed by members of Ensemble for These Times (E4TT): Nanette McGuinness, Dale Tsang and cellist Anne Lerner-Wright.

Ensemble for These Times is a new music chamber group consisting of award-winning soprano Nanette McGuinness, Van Cliburn competitor pianist Dale Tsang and the 2015 American Prize Winner in Composition David Garner, often joined by MUSA cellist Laura Gaynon or 2012 Voices of Music Young Artist Adaiha MacAdam-Somer.

The ensemble’s mission is to bring new, nearly new, forbidden and forgotten music to light, focusing on 20th- and 21st-century music that is relevant, engaging, original and compelling, music that resonates today and will speak to tomorrow. E4TT strongly believes in the power of artistic beauty, intelligence, wit, lyricism and irony to create a deep understanding of our times and the human condition.
