New York, NY. May 15. NewSong Music is very excited to announce that the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts will be hosting the live performance competition finals of the 11th Annual Mountain Stage NewSong Contest. The event will be held on Saturday, October 20 in Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium, and feature a matinee semi-final round followed by an evening Award Round. Both shows will be free to the public.
In addition, this year’s grand prize winner will also perform at the Lincoln Center’s Atrium during the 2013 season.
“It is truly exciting to collaborate with NewSong as host venue for the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest finals and to further our mutual goals of offering meaningful visibility to such talented emerging artists,” said Lincoln Center’s Hillary McAndrew Plate, Senior Manager of Meet the Artist and Community Programs.
“It’s such an honor to be working with Lincoln Center in this capacity, and a privilege to be able to offer this opportunity to this year’s twelve NewSong Contest finalists,” said NewSong director and co-founder Gar Ragland. “And to be able to invite our grand prize winner back to the Lincoln Center campus next year to perform his or her own show demonstrates Lincoln Center’s and NewSong’s shared commitment to introducing talented emerging artists to a broader audience.”
In addition to the October 20 Contest finals, NewSong is also continuing its partnership with Lincoln Center as co-curators of the NewSong Emerging Artist Series, which began last year. Summer, fall and winter dates will be announced soon.
