As part of this year’s fundraiser, New Amsterdam is partnering with Q2 Music to unveil a series of remixes of Caroline Shaw’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Partita for 8 Voices. For each week over the course of our online fundraiser, we will release a new remix via Q2 — who will stream one new remix per week on their website. To gain access to all of the remixes (download and streaming) as they are released, join the New Amsterdam 2013 Funders Club by making a tax-deductible donation below! Read more about the remix project here.
Founded on principles of community, artistic diversity, and stylistic freedom, New Amsterdam Presents is an artist service organization dedicated to supporting the public’s engagement with new music through presentation and distribution.
Over the five years since its inception by composers William Brittelle, Judd Greenstein, and Sarah Kirkland Snider, New Amsterdam has presented and curated over 75 live events and released over 50 records that have collectively garnered two Grammy nominations, a Pulitzer Prize, and numerous features and countless appearances on New York Times, Pitchfork, NPR, and other major publications.
These achievements, while they reflect New Amsterdam’s strength as an organization, are a direct extension of the talent and skill of the incredible artists in the New Amsterdam roster. These artists — composers, performers, bands and ensembles — are united not by a common sound but by their lofty artistic standards and a shared desire to continually develop their craft, taking chances artistically while engaging with as wide a range of audiences as possible.
Help us support today’s most innovative artists in developing their daring visions and bringing their work to the widest possible audience – Please consider making a tax-deductible donation by filling out the donation form below.
And don’t forget to celebrate the end of the year with New Amsterdam Presents! Join New Amsterdam artists and staff for a benefit party at the brand new Williamsburg venue/restaurant, Baby’s All Right. The party will feature performances by the stunning Trevor Wilson and Vocal Ensemble, NPR’s “Best New Artist” Son Lux, and the explosive JACK Quartet.
