Save the date! |Listening In: Composer TJ Cole

November 8, 2020 at 7:00pm Facebook Live & YouTube


The NEP is starting our 2020-21 season with a virtual masterclass–Listening In: A deep dive into the music with the NEP!


This masterclass will explore the music of TJ Cole, whose work “Nightscape” was originally programmed for our 2020-21 season.


Jump into the music and join NEP Concertmaster Dani Maddon and Composer-in-Residence Eric Nathan as they chat with the composer about her works “Nightscape” and “Playtime” and learn about the inspiration for the works, the various performance techniques each piece requires, and the overall composition process.


This performance is part of the Virtual Boston New Music festival, a two-week showcase of Boston’s leading new music ensembles. This year’s virtual festival is available both to the Boston community and audiences around the world. Learn more here.

Our 2020-21 season marks the end of nearly a quarter century
to the NEP by Music Director Richard Pittman.
We move forward, with endless gratitude to Maestro Pittman, and announce
the initiation of a Music Director Search for the 2021-22 season.
