“The Nouveau Classical Project is…putting a new face on classical music.” – NPR Deceptive Cadence, January 13, 2011, Ashalen Sims
The Nouveau Classical Project (NCP) is a New York-based music ensemble and creative production hub. The group’s mission is to re-imagine the concert experience in modern and dynamic ways through adventurous projects, new repertoire, and collaborations with fashion designers, dancers, composers, and more. Beginning by collaborating with fashion designers to create music-inspired looks to be worn by musicians, NCP has since expanded to creating imaginative projects that go beyond the traditional concert format. NCP has performed at many exciting venues including (le) poisson rouge, Galapagos Art Space, Korea Gallery, Symphony Space, Issue Project Room, and the fashion shows of Pamela Love, Gretchen Jones, Tanya Taylor, and more.
Its concerts and performances include the Inside Out concert, SubCulture (2013-2014) ; Potential Energies, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Fishman Space (2013-2014) ; and Notes on Orfeo, DiMenna Center (2014).
