Enjoy new works beginning with the addictive grooves of FTM percussionist Yonatan Rozin’s Radiocave and ending with a startling reimagining of the concerto “concept,” in Violin Concerto in D by FTM violinist Paris Lavidis. In between are three works for string quartet, including Michael Daugherty’s hilarious Elvis Everywhere. Come out to the Atrium and hear what the kids have been up to!

Kaufman Music Center’s Face the Music is the only youth ensemble in the country solely devoted to the music of living composers. Under the direction of Dr. Jenny Undercofler, Face the Music has performed at venues such as Merkin Hall, Roulette, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, and the Bang On A Can Marathon, and has been featured in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Face the Music performs music for orchestra, jazz band, and improvisation ensemble; performs music of all genres, written by its own member-composers; and partners with the Kronos Quartet in a one-of-a-kind string quartet program.
