Metaclassical Music Project

STRATA has received a generous grant from the Rauch Foundation (www.rauchfoundation.org) to launch the Metaclassical Music Project.  Through this project, we will challenge composers to bridge the gap between the inclusive and the esoteric by creating music capable of dual packaging: The new compositions will be designed to provide illustrations and structure for an educational presentation on music, while, at the same time, serving as a dramatic tour de force for the concert hall. 

Stephen Paulus (www.stephenpaulus.com) wrote the inaugural composition, which was premiered by STRATA at New York's Merkin Concert Hall on November 21, 2010, at 8:00 p.m.
