Anonymous asked: Thanks for the repost of our New Amsterdam fundraiser. One point of clarification: Kaufman Music Center is the presenter of the Ecstatic Music Festival. New Amsterdam is an associate presenter and I personally am the curator, but KMC is the presenter. It's confusing, I know! Thanks again and also thanks for posting my song with DM Stith. We're actually premiering a new work (for DM + chamber orchestra + small choir) on Saturday night at BAM, so it's great timing. - Judd
Thanks! Excited to hear more music!

As part of this year’s fundraiser, New Amsterdam is partnering with Q2 Music to unveil a series of remixes of Caroline Shaw’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Partita for 8 Voices. For each week over the course of our online fundraiser, we will release a new remix via Q2 — who will stream one new remix per week on their website. To gain access to all of the remixes (download and streaming) as they are released, join the New Amsterdam 2013 Funders Club by making a tax-deductible donation here! Read more about the remix project here.
New Amsterdam are the lovely people (William Brittelle, Sarah Kirkland Snider, and Judd Greenstein) behind the Ecstatic Music Festival, as well as some very exciting music releases. Their offices were flooded by Hurricane Sandy last year. Help them keep making beautiful music!
Stream the first piece, a remix by Lorna Dune over at Q2.
