The Queens-based composers’ group, Random Access Music, announces the second annual Queens New Music Festival from May 16-19, 2013, at The Secret Theatre Main Stage (44-02 23rd Street, Long Island City, Queens). The mission of the festival is to promote new music in Queens by focusing on the wealth of composers, musicians, and ensembles living and working in Queens, as well as highlighting artists from other parts of New York City and the country.
Following a call for proposals in fall 2012, Random Access Music selected nine diverse programs from established and emerging composers, choreographers, ensembles, and artists. Highlights of the second annual festival include the newly established Periapsis Music and Dance ensemble presenting new music with dance, the Kaufman Music Center’s Face the Music program featuring exceptionally gifted young New Yorkers, a staged theatrical performance of urban poetry and art song, two different programs highlighting Japanese and Spanish heritages in New York City, plus more cutting-edge music by some of today’s most exciting composers and composer-led musical ensembles.
