The New School's Mannes College of Music Announces Schneider Concerts Online Season

The New School's Mannes College of Music has announced the Schneider Concerts ONLINE | 2020-21 Season - we have been working for the past few months to develop a flexible model that will allow us to continue to provide outstanding, emerging chamber artists with performance opportunities and offer New York audiences intimate introductions to the chamber music stars of the future.

All scheduled concerts will be produced for online presentation on Livestream.com, featuring unique programming for our series, as well as post-concert live discussions between the ensemble members and esteemed guest artists, with the opportunity for audience members to ask questions via chat. If conditions evolve to allow safe gathering in New York City and safe travel for the musicians, we will also present the ensembles live in The New School's hall on 12th Street. However, even when concerts are able to move forward in our hall, we will continue to present them online as well, so that those who do not feel safe in public gatherings don't have to miss anything.

We are pleased that this season, in addition to beloved works of the traditional chamber music repertoire, each concert features at least one work by a living composer. Composers are: Jessie Montgomery, Caroline Shaw, Reena Esmail, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, and John Corgiliano.
