Novus NY is Trinity Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra. Hailed by The New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” Novus NY was established by composer-conductor Julian Wachner in 2011. In its first season, Novus NY was featured in “Remember to Love,” Trinity’s commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the events of 11 September. Of the week-long tribute, The New York Times wrote, “If there is such a thing as a musical blessing, Trinity Church conferred it on a neighbourhood and a city still in need of one.” The orchestra is an integral part of Trinity’s musical outreach, which has included the critically acclaimed series: Twelve in ’12, Stravinsky Festival, Celebrating Britten, and Lamentatio.
