newEar concerts often feature a visual or cross-cultural element that blurs the boundaries of classical, rock, jazz, world music and the avant-garde. Other artistic disciplines are often part of newEar performances -- you may see dance, visual arts or theatre in the mix.
newEar has premiered over 70 compositions by such composers as William Kraft, James Mobberley, Lansing McLoskey, Judith Shatin, Michael Henry, Adrienne Elisha, John Hilliard, Tina Davidson, and newEar resident composers Ingrid Stölzel, Alonzo Conway, Paul Rudy, Mark Lowry, and Dwight Frizzell.
