113, a collection of composers and performers of new music, curates concerts, seminars, and master classes throughout the US and Europe. Through ambitious programming, community building, educational outreach, and emphasis on extensive interaction between composers and performers, 113 provides a platform for musicians pursuing bold, personalized artistic visions, and helps them to transmit those visions as directly and honestly as possible to audiences, unfettered by university politics, market pressures, or established conventions.
Since its inception in 2012, 113 has presented over sixty world premieres and worked with composers and performers such as Richard Barrett, Anthony Cheung, Chaya Czernowin, James Dillon, Julio Estrada, Brian Ferneyhough, Michael Pisaro, Collect/Project, Duo Gelland, Ensemble Dal Niente, Fonema Consort, The Gregorian Singers, Marcelo Rilla, Bill Solomon, Strains New Music Ensemble, and Milana Zaric, among others.
Our concert at the Center for New Music in San Francisco will feature performances by Duo Gelland (violins), Nina Dante (soprano), Maria Ritzenthaler (viola), and the Hutchins/Qiang Duo (Jeffery Kyle Hutchins- saxophone and Neil Nanyi Qiang- piano).
Work by Georges Aperghis, Chaya Czernowin, and James Dillon, as well as West Coast premieres by 113 composers Joey Crane, Sam Krahn, Joshua Musikantow, Tiffany Skidmore, and Jeremy Wagner.
