New Scores: The Cone Institute Concert
Saturday, July 15, at 8 pm | New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark

Join us for New Scores: The Edward T. Cone Institute Concert, featuring your New Jersey Symphony performing the works of four emerging composers! The works you’ll hear at this performance—Messages in the Ground, Walls of Brocade Fields, Hydrosphere and Bya—only hint at the musical journey you’ll experience at this concert. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear about the inspiration for these works directly from the composers themselves. In addition to the music from this year’s Cone Institute composers—Tom Morrison, Kory Reeder, Sam Wu and Yangfan Xu—you’ll also hear "Sphere" from Institute director and concert host Steven Mackey’s Concerto for Curved Space, a work he premiered with the Boston Symphony Orchestra earlier this year.
