ORCHESTRA OF THE LEAGUE OF COMPOSERS

Since 2009, the Orchestra of the League of Composers has presented concerts of new music under the auspices of its parent organisation, the League of Composers/ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music). Founded in 2009 by then-ISCM president David Gordon, flutist Sue Ann Kahn, and composer Louis Karchin, the orchestra debuted at the Miller Theatre at Columbia University in a program of works by Elliott Carter, Christopher Dietz, Julia Wolfe, Charles Wuorinen, and Alvin Singleton, which was critically acclaimed by Anthony Tommasini in The New York Times.

The orchestra has commissioned and premiered ten new works to date, and presented 19 New York or world premieres. The orchestra has been consistently praised by The New York Times: in 2010 its season finale was noted for its spirit and programming, critic Steve Smith again praised its ambitious programming in 2013, and in 2014, the orchestra’s performances were lauded. In 2016, the orchestra was invited to participate in the NY Phil Biennial, and in 2017, received a special award and citation from the Fritz Reiner Center for Contemporary Music at Columbia University.
