21st Chopin and Friends Festival "New Vision" Concert 

​The New York Dance & Arts Innovations presents the New Vision concert, as part of the 21st Chopin & Friends Festival between Nov. 8- 26, 2019. The festival showcases innovative artists who emulate Chopin in uniting the traditional and the modern, the young and the mature, the national and the universal, in all the art forms.

This year is the 160th anniversary of the national Polish opera romantic composer - Stanisław Moniuszko. The New Vision concert's subject focuses on modern music dialogues with some of the themes used in Moniuszko's music: love, daily life, faith, and any national or folklore syndrome. Joined by the Four Corners Ensemble and guest artists Justyna Giermola, Helen Haas, Marina Renee Hogue, and members from the Argus Quartet, Clara Kim and Giancarlo Latta, the program consists of music by the composers-in-residence, Jakub Polaczyk, Reza Vali, and Shuying Li, as well as the two winning compositions awarded in the 2nd International New Vision Composition Competition: Tomas Peire Serrate’s “Five Haiku" and Charles Peck’s “Splinter."
