Composers Concordance, a presenting organization for contemporary music with a 27-year history of successful premieres in NYC, announces  an unusual concert event to take place at the Performing Center of St. Sava Cathedral: 20 West 26th St (Broadway) on Tuesday, May 31st, at 8pm.

The event's theme is 'Generations', and will feature the distinctive  music of two competition winners: one composer age 20 or younger, and  another composer age 70 or older. The dynamic ensemble Circadia will  perform, featuring clarinetist Christopher Cullen, flutist Kaoru  Hinata, violinist Lynn Bechtold, cellist Jennifer DeVore, and pianist
Dimitri Dover.

The lively program will also include a piccolo solo composed by Louis Calabro, a violin solo by Otto Luening entitled 'Fantasia and Dance', a duo by Derek Bermel entitled 'Coming Together', and a duo by Dan Cooper entitled 'Bowery', as well as exciting world premieres: a trio
by Joseph Pehrson entitled 'Altered', and a quartet by Gene Pritsker entitled 'At a Respectful Distance'.
