The Union College Concert Series, led by artistic director Derek Delaney, has received a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in support of “The American Sound: Modernism and Eclecticism,” a project featuring recent works and a Union-commissioned piece by some of today’s leading American composers, highlighting their roots to important works of the early part of the 20th century.

The project features renowned and emerging American musicians including: violinist Jennifer Koh with pianist Shai Wosner; violinist Stefan Jackiw and pianist Jeremy Denk; violinist Soovin Kim (New England Conservatory faculty), cellist Paul Watkins (Emerson Quartet), and pianist Gloria Chien (CMS of Lincoln Center); the Brentano Quartet (Yale’s quartet-in-residence); and Curtis flutist Emma Resmini (resident at Minnesota Public Radio).
