The festival line-up will include a diverse array of groups from the young performers of Face The Music to the long established Composers Concordance Ensemble; from small groups like Duo RoMi to large ensembles like TAK ensemble; from classic groupings like Trio Kavak and Eight Strings & a Whistle to the experimental–Ghost Ensemble–and burgeoning–H2 Sax Quartet. Please join us for one these great concerts. Single concert tickets, 1-day passes, and all festival passes are available.

Saturday, May 10, 2014 7:30 pm; Musica Reginae: New Music Composer’s Forum II

This year, RAM is joined by Musica Reginae Productions to widen the festival’s reach to even more of Queens. In conjunction with Musica Reginae, one of Queen’s oldest concert presenters, we’re expanding the festival into a borough-wide celebration of new music. Visit for tickets and more information,visit musicreginae.org or call (718) 894-2178.

KAVAK_webimage2RAM and Trio Kavak team up for the season finale to present In the New Sun, an evening of 21st century works written for flute, viola, and harp. Three world premieres by RAM composers David Fetherolf, Gilbert Galindo, and Wang Jie will be heard along with music by RAM’s call for scores winner Christopher Dietz and guest composer Mark Fromm from the Pittsburgh composers’ collective Alia Musica. This program takes you on an adventure casting out evil, going into the world of Whitman, exploring Greek mythology, on a sonic ride into celestial orbit, and dancing to subway train tunes. You will have two chances to catch this program:

Sunday, May 18 @ 6pm at the Secret Theatre
