Sunday, July 10th at the MoMA (11 West 53rd Street, New York City)
The Museum of Modern Art established Summergarden in 1971 to enhance the artistic life of New York City during the summer. In keeping with MoMA’s history of presenting jazz and classical music in The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, this year’s Summergarden series once again welcomes the participation of two constituents from Lincoln Center: The Juilliard School and Jazz at Lincoln Center, with concerts on alternating Sundays. New Music for New York presents four evenings of adventurous contemporary music, with premieres each night.
Juilliard concerts are performed by members of The New Juilliard Ensemble, under the artistic direction of Joel Sachs, who has assembled two distinctive programs of contemporary compositions, all of which are enjoying their New York, United States, Western Hemisphere, or world premieres. Jazz at Lincoln Center has selected two leading jazz trios whose concerts emphasize original works, each with one world premiere.
