MACE (Mannes American Composers Ensemble), Concert 2
The season will see the introduction of MACE (The Mannes American Composers Ensemble), a newly formed large ensemble that will focus on the music of living American composers, directed and conducted by newly appointed Mannes faculty member, composer Lowell Liebermann.
MACE not only presents works by iconic American masters such as John Adams and Elliott Carter, but will also present cutting-edge works by up and coming composers. The ensemble aims to embrace as broad a view possible of the incredibly diverse and vital landscape of contemporary American Music.
