There’s something special about the stories told by musicians. Whether they’re reminiscing about family history, sharing the memory of meeting a favorite collaborator, or revealing the impetus behind an important piece, artists can offer unique and compelling insights into their lives and the work they create—and often the broader world at large.

New Music USA is proud to present NewMusicBox LIVE, a special program that highlights three very different artists and the work of its online publication NewMusicBox. For more than 17 years NewMusicBox has featured hundreds of amazing music makers, presenting in-depth conversations with them through text and video and showcasing their music for a broad fan base. With this Ear Taxi event, NewMusicBox editors Frank J. Oteri and Molly Sheridan are excited to bring this experience to a live audience. Please join us as we invite Shulamit Ran, Nicole Mitchell, and Andy Costello to take the stage and, using both their words and their music, pull back the curtain just a little bit further on the motivations and inspirations that fuel their creative lives.
