In its ninth season, WindSync, the prizewinning Houston-based wind quintet builds highly thematic programs that feature landmark quintets, new works by American composers, and premiere arrangements of standard repertoire with the goal of increasing accessibility and cultural significance of wind chamber music. WindSync is recognized for dramatic, fully memorized concert presentations. WindSync tours nationally and internationally, appearing at venues including the Schubert Club (MN), Met Museum, Shanghai Oriental Arts Center, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Advocates of 21st century musicianship models and community-oriented programming, the members of WindSync have led master classes at New World Symphony, Texas Music Festival, and the University of Maryland Renegade Series, among others. Premieres include works by Paul English, Garrett Schumann, Paul Lansky, Michael Gilbertson, and Mark Buller.  WindSync has also served as ensemble-in-residence for the Chamber Music Festival of Lexington (KY), Grand Teton Music Festival, and the Da Camera of Houston Young Artists Program.

Hailed in The New York Times as “one of the best deals in town for lovers of classical music,” for six decades, The New School’s Mannes School for Music’s Schneider Concerts series has presented outstanding young artists and ensembles at non-exclusionary ticket prices. The series’ remarkable history includes the New York debuts of pianist Peter Serkin and the Dover, Calidore, Guarneri, Cleveland, and Vermeer String Quartets and TASHI. Artists such as Yefim Bronfman, Richard Goode, Jaime Laredo, Yo Yo Ma, and Murray Perahia were introduced to New York audiences early in their careers. The series was founded at The New School in 1957 as New School Concerts by violinist and conductor Alexander Schneider, who led the series until his death in 1993, at which time the series was renamed The Schneider Concerts in his honor. Artistic leadership is now under the auspices of a committee of ten noted musicians: John Dalley, Pamela Frank, Jennifer Koh, Jaime Laredo, Cho-Liang Lin, Anthony McGill, Kurt Muroki, Tara O’Connor, and Arnold Steinhardt.


Now in its second century as a dynamic musical center, Mannes School of Music is a standard bearer for innovative artistry, dedicated to developing citizen artists who engage their communities and the world through music. Through its undergraduate, graduate, professional studies, and preparatory programs, Mannes offers a curriculum as imaginative as it is rigorous, taught by a world-class faculty and visiting artists. As part of The New School’s College of Performing Arts, together with the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music and the School of Drama, Mannes makes its home on The New School’s Greenwich Village campus in a state-of-the-art facility at the newly renovated Arnhold Hall.

Founded in 1919, The New School was born out of principles of academic freedom, tolerance, and experimentation. Committed to social engagement, The New School today remains in the vanguard of innovation in higher education, with more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students challenging the status quo in design and the social sciences, liberal arts, management, the arts, and media. The New School welcomes thousands of adult learners annually for continuing education courses and calendar of lectures, screenings, readings, and concerts. Through its online learning portals, research institutes, and international partnerships, The New School maintains a global presence.
