Eyes and Ears
PNME has partnered with the American Composer’s Forum in a competition to commission and premiere three new works to be written for us for premiere during our 2018 summer season. Master of all styles David Biedenbender, up and coming composer Jung Yoon Wie, and legendary jazz great Rufus Reid were chosen as winners from a pool of 370 composers. As a teaser for next season, we are featuring a short work by each of these three composers as well as Andrew Garner’s haunting Glasz and a newly commissioned world premiere by Thomas Osborne written for our very own Timothy Jones. We have also joined with local Pittsburgh visual artists who will present works onstage with us to create an evening stimulating the heart through both the eyes and the ears. Yes, all the winning composers will be present. Yes - we are talking visual arts onstage with us. Yes - Rufus Reid is here - and PERFORMING WITH PNME tonight! What else can you say? “Only at PNME...!”
