Ten composers. Ten performers. Ten premieres.
Developed as a fresh, creative outlet for Phoenix jazz artists, the Nash Composers Coalition makes its debut with a complete program of original works. Spearheaded by Keith Kelly, Jeff Libman, and Russell Schmidt, the Nash Composers Coalition is guided by this principal: each performer should also contribute a new piece for the group to play.
While the ensemble’s personnel and size will change from event to event, the NCC’s goal will remain constant: to create a collective, collaborative musicmaking experience, where the players also share their compositional voices with one another. And those voices—as writers—are proving to be extremely diverse. So this won’t only be a unique opportunity for the ten composer/performers; it will also be a rewarding, new listening experience for our audience at The Nash.
Please join us for the very special debut performance of the Nash Composers Coalition.
