Must Love Cats is a chance for new and veteran composers alike to write for a seasoned, greased, and limber band that reads, improvises, and yearns for musical adventure.
We recently embarked on a new musical journey, asking composers to submit new works for our ensemble. Now that the deadline for scores has passed, we are excitedly reviewing every work in anticipation of recording an album of this material.
Five pieces will be selected, and we will work with the composer over the subsequent months, then perform the new compositions at a special series of concerts in the fall of 2014.
The concert series will be accompanied by a highly publicized release of a live concert film, professional studio album, and beautiful booklet profiling each composer.
Stay tuned as we continue this process!
