THE DEVELOPMENT · TRIBECA, NYC
The Nouveau Classical Project (NCP) is a New York-based, all-women contemporary classical music ensemble that is "bringing a refreshing edge to the widely conservative genre" (VICE). It began by collaborating with fashion designers for its concerts and has expanded to creating multidisciplinary performances. Its mission is to engage new audiences and show that classical music is a living, breathing art form.
