Israeli Chamber Project

The Israeli Chamber Project announces its tenth anniversary season, which includes concerts, new commissions, educational outreach, and residencies across the U.S., Canada, Israel, and Hong Kong. 

The Playground

Our Residency is going well. Last week, Dr. St. John-Larkin and Loretta Notareschi lectured on maternal mental health for grand rounds, followed by a performance of Notareschi's String Quartet OCD. About 75 doctors attended, and many commented on the way the program helped them viscerally understand maternal mental illness. 


During our 2017-2018 season, Arcomusical is delighted to feature our CMA Classical Commissioning Program supported work, "Roda" by Elliot Cole! We have had an incredible year collaborating with Elliot. The 20-minute, four-movement work result is representative of Elliot's dedication to his art.


Lawler + Fadoul received a 2017 CMA grant for a Residency Parternship with the Union #38 School District in Western Massachusetts. We will present 19 interactive concerts about dances and reach every prek-6th grade student in the school district!

Sylvan Winds

The Sylvan Winds have been awarded a CMA Residency Partnership Grant in the Washington Heights community of New York City. A vital, yet underserved part of the city's population, we will be working with children and their families, as well as seniors to bring engaging, collaborative, and meaningful music experiences in March 2018.

August 31 2017, New Yor-Uba recorded the CMA-commissioned work, "Oru de Oro". A 45-minute suite reflecting the super-evolving concept of the ensemble and the music, this will be the majority of a new CD, to be completed in October and released in 2018. Am forever grateful to CMA for supporting our evolution. Invaluable.

We enjoyed a very open, curious, + experimental workshop with Evis Sammoutis earlier this Fall, where we dove immediately into multiphonics, limitations, + blending possibilities. The highlight was a trip to Home Depot, where the clarinet mouthpiece had the most success with getting sounds out of PVC pipes! 

New York Polyphony

New York Polyphony is a 2016 CMA Classical Commissioning grant recipient for a new work by Gregory Spears. We are in the final process of revisions with Greg and we are very excited for the completed copy! Here is the original image upon which this work is based:


On Oct 22, 2016 - we finished our residency at the Richmond Art Center with "How did you make that?".  Nothing like performing (with audience help!) Steve Reich's Pendulum Music.  Also music by Bach, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Ben Johnston, and Anthony Braxton.  That's an earful to then make art to!
