Welcome to North/South Consonance's 37th consecutive season.
During the early autumn days of 1980, a group of astonishing musicians came together to perform the first North/South Chamber Orchestra concert. While much has changed in 36 years, the values cherished in those early days—flexibility, intimacy, commitment to the community, and consummate artistry—continue to propel this amazing ensemble.
In a culture overwhelmed by mere entertainment, the imposing breadth of North/South events celebrates the astonishing spectrum of creative voices among us, while upholding an all-too-rare commitment to artistic innovation.
Our free-admission concerts are peppered with lively commentary designed to enhance your listening experience. Performed by superb musicians, our inventive programs showcase music by three generations of composers hailing from throughout the Americas and the world. Often new to New York, their refreshingly accessible music never fails to stimulate, challenge and excite.
The ever-expanding North/South Recordings compact disc catalogue features expert performances of significant compositions, several written especially for the North/South Chamber Orchestra. These albums bring the music of composers we champion to an international audience and the convenience of your home.
Join our community of friends and patrons as we continue to bring contemporary music to New York City audiences. Your tax-deductible contribution will empower us to support creativity and innovation as well as to proceed vigorously into the next 37 years of musical discovery.
Take note and attend our events. Be swayed by the allure, drama and energy of today's music.
—Max Lifchitz, Founder & Director
