Join Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble (PNME) for a whole new concert experience as we celebrate our 39th season, July 10-August 1, 2014 at City Theatre (1300 Bingham Street in the South Side). Be a part of something truly spectacular as we celebrate two world premieres, music by your favorite living composers, and collaboration with local artists.
Concert 1 (July 10 & 11 at 8 pm)
Concert 2 (July 17 and 18 at 8 pm).
The 2015 season will once again include a Wednesday Showcase Series on July 15, featuring PNME cellist Norbert Lewandowski. Norbert's enormous stylistic diversity will be on full display as will his well reviewed "mahogany tone". Repertoire will include David' Lang's A World To Come, and works by Phillip Glass and Andy Akiho.
The 2015 season will also include Wednesday Showcase Series on July 22, featuring the incredible slam poetry of William Langford. This is a one of a kind PNME event - we couldn't pass up the opportunity to present his work to you for a full one hour evening show. He will also be performing with us on the upcoming Concert #3! Join us for an unforgettable performance by a truly gifted modern poet. Will... is the real deal.
Concert 3 (July 24 and 25) Will feature a return of PNME's signature Return Flight - with music by György Ligeti, Thierry de Mey, poets William Langford and Danny Spiegel, and more.
Concert 4 (July 31 and August 1)
This program will feature a return of PNME's signature Ohio Entelechron production with music by Roger Zahab, and Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Puts and more! Stay Tuned!
