No longer just R.I. fast food, New York System performs at RIC May 12

New York System, a contemporary chamber music ensemble, will perform on Tuesday, May 12, at 8 p.m. in the Nazarian Center’s Sapinsley Hall. The ensemble will present its repertoire of musical arrangements, most of which have been written during the last 30 years and primarily by American composers.

Named after the famous Rhode Island-based hot wieners, the ensemble is conducted by faculty member Ian Greitzer and comprised entirely of members of the RIC community. Members Moriah Ramox and Julia Roche (flute), Amanda Shuman (Clarinet), Elizabeth Codd (violin), Morgan Santos (violoncello), Richard Anatone (piano) and Dustin Patrick (percussion) are RIC undergraduates enrolled in the college’s Music, Theatre, and Dance department.

The evening will open with a piece titled “Pieces for Right Hand,” written by New York System’s own Anatone, before proceeding through compositions by John Rutter, Astor Piazzolla and James Bohn. Works by Mike Mower, Richard Muldoon and Igor Stravinsky will conclude the evening’s performance.

Free admission.
