Hub New Music
July 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Called “contemporary chamber trailblazers” by the Boston Globe, Hub New Music is a “nimble quartet of winds and strings” (NPR) forging new paths in 21st-century repertoire. The ensemble’s ambitious commissioning projects and “appealing programs” (New Yorker) celebrate the rich diversity of today’s classical music landscape.
Founded in 2013, Hub New Music has grown into a formidable touring ensemble driven by an unwavering dedication to building community through new art. Across its career, Hub has commissioned dozens of new works and continues to usher in a fresh and culturally relevant body of work for its distinct combination of flute, clarinet, violin, and cello. Hub is proud to collaborate with today’s most celebrated emerging and established composers, and is equally proud to count many of them as friends.
Highlights in 2022-23 include concerts throughout the U.S. with presenters such as Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Arizona Friends of Chamber Music, Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center, Soka Performing Arts Center, Celebrity Series of Boston, Brigham Young University, and the Roxbury Arts Group’s Old School Baptist Church venue in the Denver-Vega Valley. The group also has upcoming residencies at the University of Michigan, University of Southern California, and Brown University.
Hub New Music is Michael Avitabile (flutes), Gleb Kanasevich (clarinets), Meg Rohrer (violin/viola), and Jesse Christeson (cello). The ensemble’s name is inspired by its founding city of Boston’s reputation as a hub of innovation.
