Versipel New Music is excited to welcome Nouveau Classical Project for their New Orleans debut. They will perform Currents, an electro-acoustic concert that juxtaposes contrasting compositional styles in an eclectic program, celebrating the marriage of tradition and technology featuring works by composers who thrive in both the classical and pop worlds, Olga Bell and Gabrielle Herbst aka GABI, as well as award-winning composers David Bird and Isaac Schankler. NCP will also premiere a new work by New Orleans composer and Versipellian Rick Snow.
The Nouveau Classical Project (NCP) is a New York-based contemporary classical music ensemble that is “bringing a refreshing edge to the widely conservative genre” (VICE). It began by collaborating with fashion designers for its concerts and has expanded to creating multidisciplinary performances. Its mission is to engage new audiences and show that classical music is a living, breathing art form.
