“Next time [Hub New Music] offers a concert, go, listen, and be changed” - the Boston Globe “In short, Hub New Music is a group you should pay attention to.” - Classical Dark Arts Hub New Music is a mixed quartet of “young intrepids” (WQXR, New York) exploring a richly diverse palette of 21st century sounds. With a unique instrumentation of flute, clarinet, violin, and cello, Hub has been praised for "handling tricky ensemble passages with ease" (New Music Box) in performances that are “elegant and exacting” (the Boston Globe) and inspire a “refreshing sense of pure joy.” (New Classic LA)
Hub New Music’s repertoire reflects the genre-defying fluidity of music today, and includes the works of Mason Bates, Evan Ziporyn, Anna Clyne, Kati Agocs, Daniel Wohl, Nico Muhly, Robert Honstein, Kirsten Volness, and Laura Kaminsky. Projects for the 2017/18 season include a collaboration with the Silk Road Ensemble’s Kojiro Umezaki (shakuhachi) & the Asia/America New Music Initiative, Soul House - a new program exploring concepts of memory and reflection with a new work by Robert Honstein, and a new chamber-pop song cycle with composer/harpist Audrey Harrer. 2017/18 season highlights include performances and residencies at the Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival (NYC),Versipel Guest Artist Series (New Orleans), Peabody Essex Museum (Salem, MA), Tribeca New Music Festival, and University of MIchigan.. As curators and collaborative artists, Hub New Music has brought several large scale initiatives into fruition. These include recent portrait concerts of Andrew Norman and Kati Agócs, both of which garnered critical acclaim from the Boston Globe. For its visionary programming as both a quartet and as collaborative artists, Hub was named one of WQXR's Q2 Music's "10 Cutting-Edge Ensembles That Have Captured the Imagination" in 2016. The ensemble are also passionate educators whose approach to teaching places contemporary music within the context of a centuries old yet rapidly evolving musical tradition. Working with student performers and composers alike at residencies across the country, Hub trains future generations of contemporary artists and places strong emphasis on arts entrepreneurship as a vital component of a musical education. Hub has held and looks toward residencies at the New England Conservatory, University of Michigan, Northeastern University, Lehigh University, Cleveland State University, Texas State at San Marcos, Clark University, and University of California at Riverside.
Hub New Music owes thanks to its supporters including the Cricket Foundation, Boston Cultural Council , the Florence & Joseph Mandel Family Foundation, Johnstone Fund for New Music and New England Conservatory Office of Entrepreneurial Musicianship. The ensemble’s name is inspired by its founding city of Boston and the notion that a hub is a center of innovation.
"Next time [Hub New Music] gives a concert, go, listen, and be changed." the Boston Globe "Then they took on Mason Bates’s The Life of Birds . . . handling tricky ensemble passages with ease. Toward the end the bench I sat on got a little uncomfortable, but the music didn’t." New Music Box “Young intrepids of the Boston new music scene . . . Just as much as HUB is committed to making vibrant music, it is committed to engaging and building a vibrant community. " WQXR (New York) "I felt a refreshing sense of pure joy and innocence while listening to this work [Mason Bates, "The Life of Birds"] – a perfect way to end the evening." New Classic LA "All of these works were given impeccable and impassioned performances from the Hub players . . . They play with a single mind but without sacrificing personality." Boston Musical Intelligencer "As the orchestra job market tightens and audience numbers dwindle, groups like Hub New Music offer an enticing way forward. In short, Hub New Music is a group you should pay attention to." Classical Dark Arts “The group of performers that make up Hub’s core roster present a style of music that is not often performed in Boston, a style that blurs the lines between indie-rock and contemporary classical.” WBUR (Boston) “elegant and exacting” The Boston Globe
Soul House Robert Honstein's work Soul House serves as a point of departure for this program delving into memory and reflection. The program begins with Anna Clyne's 1987, a reflective work for quartet and tape in which the tape's source material is "a melody and winding sounds from a music box that my [Clyne's] father gave my mother in their early days of courting, and the sounds of the carousel and pebbles at Brighton Beach in the South of England—a place of fond memories." Following the Clyne is the title work, Robert Honstein's Soul House. Honstein writes of the piece, "Ancient Egyptian funerary practice provisioned tombs with objects that would provide sustenance for the afterlife. Wealthy elites had elaborate models of servants preparing foods and other necessities while poorer people had Soul Houses, crude model dwellings, stocked with clay food to nourish the dead. These tiny clay houses bear a strange resemblance to the adobe structures found throughout the American Southwest, where my recently passed Grandmother spent her life. My piece Soul House takes this ancient funery practice as a starting point for a personal reflection on death, memory, and burial." The final piece on the program is Evan Ziporyn's meditative work Thread. The work draws on the composer's signature style of seamlessly merging eastern and western musical traditions. Swirling melodic lines and exotic harmonies unfolding over this half hour work allow the listener to enter into a luxurious almost timeless world of reflection and meditation.

Blue Hub New Music’s multimedia program Blue contrasts transcendent states of meditation with the geopolitical issues of our reality through collaboration between music and film. It is inspired by Evan Ziporyn's hypnotic sonic journey Thread and Laura Kaminsky’s environmentally charged work The Full Range of Blue. Of the piece, Kaminsky writes its inspiration comes from“9/11 and its aftermath; also references the manifestation of blue in nature.” Paired with the Full Range of Blue are short films by the Wilder Project, a groundbreaking New York based dance-film collective whose work captures raw humanity through movement and lens. The collective has won recent critical acclaim at the Philadelphia Screendance Festival. Works on Blue Evan Ziporyn, Thread (2005) Laura Kaminsky, The Full Range of Blue (2001)
Rhapsody and Idiosyncrasy The work of Kati Agócs is the centerpiece of Hub New Music’s program R hapsody, and Idiosyncrasy which immerses listeners in a sound world of striking visceral lyricism across contrasting aesthetics and sonic possibilities. Agócs’ new work is particularly special as it is a celebration of years of collaboration beginning in Hub’s formative years while students at the New England Conservatory. Additional works on the program by Judd Greenstein, Yevgeniy Sharlat, and Nico Muhly offer stylistic juxtapositions that both compliment and contrast in such a way that highlights the lyrical diversity of music written today.

Pushing Boundaries 2.0 Hub New Music continues its dedication to genre-defying new classical music in this continuation of its Pushing Boundaries program. Works on Pushing Boundaries 2.0 look at influences of pop, folk, and electronic music through the lens of 21st century chamber works. Freely pulling from ideas outside the confines of western music, each composer brings a global perspective to their work..

Educational Programs In addition to performers, Hub New Music is a group of passionate educators dedicated to creating comprehensive residency programs for students of many disciplines. Please see below for a list of the ensemble’s educational programs. Hub New Music is happy to customize a residency to best fit with any curriculum. Chamber Music Coachings and Masterclass
Each member of Hub is a seasoned chamber musician, working in a variety of contexts and genres. Hub brings our spirit of diversity and collaboration in both public chamber music masterclasses as well as private coachings for student ensembles of all ages and levels. Composition Workshop and Commissioning Seminar This two part educational program is geared toward student composers. In the first part, Hub New Music workshops student pieces in a masterclass setting, offering feedback on topics such as orchestration for mixed quartet, use of extended techniques, and working with an ensemble. The second part is an in depth discussion on the commissioning process exploring topics as composer/performer relationships, making a commission agreement, and fundraising for a new piece. The 21st Century Musician Hub's performers enjoy diverse backgrounds as performers, arrangers, curators, recording engineers, and entrepreneurs. Our lecture on 21st century musicianship gives students a look at running an arts organization touching upon the basics of marketing, development, management, outreach, and artistic planning. Demystifying Self-Management Executive Director, Michael Avitabile uses his background in artist management to discuss the business of booking concerts and tours. In this lecture, students will learn about different types of presenters, creating an effective pitch, building tours, designing concert programs, and crafting educational residencies.
The First Rehearsal
Performers of new music face the challenge of tackling works that in many instances have been performed only a handful times or not at all. Hub’s cellist Jesse Christeson leads a talk on how to prepare for the first rehearsal of a new work with methods of score study, cueing parts, and rehearsal techniques. Side by Side Performance Hub New Music can perform several works from its collaborative repertoire alongside students, giving them an inside look at working with a professional contemporary music ensemble. Note these residencies require several days of preparation with students and are based on the repertoire selection.
