“Aaron Wunsch’s free concert series has hit gold.” – The New Yorker, April 2016, Russell Platt

Music Mondays (2004), founded by conductor Paul Hostetter, is a New York-based ensemble with the mission to bring high caliber chamber music to a large and diverse audience, and to foster young talent.

Many ensembles heard at Music Mondays have also appeared in prominent venues such as Lincoln Center (Jupiter Quartet, Miró Quartet) and have been reviewed in The New York Times (Daedalus Quartet, Brentano Quartet). Music Mondays presents nine free concerts every year with professional musicians who are in the early or middle stages of their performing careers. The musicians are strongly encouraged to program not only classics, but also high quality contemporary music.

Past concerts have included the New York premieres of Nothing New and A Serious Man by Judd Greenstein (2016); Plan and Elevation by Caroline Shaw (2016); Museon Polemos by Dan Welcher (2014); and the World Premiere of Ferlinghetti for Clarinet, Viola, and Piano by Libby Larsen (2015). The May 2015 concert featured music composed and performed by award winner Kate Soper and the Wet Ink Ensemble.
