Composers Concordance is a presenting organization for contemporary music with a 30-year-history of producing concerts in New York City. We strive to present music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. In recent years, we have expanded our series to include events at art galleries, clubs, and other alternative venues, in addition to the traditional concert hall. Directors Gene Pritsker, Dan Cooper, and Milica Paranosic, together with Founding Directors Joseph Pehrson and Patrick Hardish, curate the programs, and lead the Composers Concordance Ensemble, which is the ensemble-in-residence at William Paterson University. Composers Concordance has also created a new record label, Composers Concordance Records, with distribution by Naxos. The growing catalog includes an eclectic variety of music, including contemporary chamber, electronic, hip-hop, jazz, opera, and beyond. As Raul d'Gama Rose has written in All About Jazz "(These) composers are breaking barriers between genres and idioms...modern pieces that run the gamut of tonal color and timbral experimentation with definitive skill and absolute mastery." Our overriding vision is to see contemporary music, composers, and new works as a rightful and respected part of society. Good music, performed and recorded well, pushing the boundaries of sound and composition.
