We are excited to share that our project, “Hallelujah Anyhow: The Premiere Recording of Alvin Singleton’s String Quartets” has been selected as one of New Music USA‘s latest Project Grants. Momenta has enjoyed a longterm collaboration and friendship with the eminent composer Alvin Singleton; most recently, he dedicated his fourth string quartet, “Hallelujah Anyhow” (2019), to us as part of a Chamber Music America commission. This album, which will be recorded under Alvin’s supervision, will be an important asset to scholars of his music and to future generations of performers.
We are proud to be one of the 110 projects involving 392 creators and artists highlighted in this tenth round of New Music USA’s Project Grants. For information on the other projects, check out the official press release at https://nmbx.newmusicusa.org/social-news/2020-project-grants/.
