Description:

New American Music for Violin and Voice is a new duo based in New York City, featuring violinist Hajnal Pivnick of Tenth Intervention and mezzo soprano Kayleigh Butcher of Quince Ensemble. Hajnal and Kayleigh are both contemporary classical performers dedicated to commissioning and disseminating new works by living American composers.

This duo introduces five world premiere pieces into the voice and violin repertoire. In order to represent the gamut of styles and backgrounds within the American new music community, two of the five composers involved in this premiere project are women and three are composers of color.
