Dear Network Community,

As Network’s season draws to a close, and stories of challenges and perseverance are shared, we'd like to take a brief moment of your time to reflect on our story, and to THANK YOU for your part in making this extraordinary year such a positive one! 

When it became clear that we would be unable to have a live season in the fall of 2020, we rapidly devised a plan to reimagine all in the digital realm. Not knowing exactly how it would play out, or how our audience would respond, we moved forward anyway, to offer monthly digital events from October through April, and a digital composition class to Philadelphia All City Orchestra students in March.

We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our audiences and funders! Because of you, and despite the challenges of the pandemic, we had the confidence to bring you what you expect from Network: excellence in new music and meaningful educational programming.

Playlist: Complete 2020-21 Season including all digital concerts and pre-concert interviews with Thomas and composers. Enjoy! 
There were also other unexpected favorable outcomes this year, like the pre/post-concert Zoom sessions, where you shared how much you enjoyed being "up close and personal" with the composers and musicians who created and performed with such passion and imagination! And like many of you, as COVID-19 raged around us, we were also awakened to the raw reality of systemic racism in our country and committed ourselves to listening on a deeper level, as Karen Walwyn so eloquently references in the video below.
Karen Walwyn speaks about "listening more closely" in this introduction to the performance of her work, For Spangled Hearts, featured on our October 2020 broadcast.
This summer, more extraordinary activity will occur as we rejoin the Mann Center's ACOSA program that provides Philadelphia students with amazing educational opportunities at no cost! If you haven't already, you must view this video highlighting two bright shining stars from last summer's program.

With your continued support, next season we’ll emerge stronger than ever, and ready to celebrate with some milestone concerts: Jan Krzywicki’s 30 years as Network’s conductor; James Joyce’s Ulysses manuscript centennial; and the Musical Fund Society’s bicentennial.

We remain grateful for your support and enthusiasm for our work, the vitality and necessity of which was underscored during this unprecedented season. Please consider a season-end gift to Network for New Music, and join us as we embark on an extraordinary journey forward!

Gratefully yours,

The Board, Staff and Musicians of Network for New Music
