TILT Brass completes its month-long TILT 10 Festival as resident brass ensemble for New Amsterdam Presents’ Ecstatic Summer 2013, an evening of premieres presented on the Hudson River at Brookfield Place Plaza (part of 2013 River To River Festival).

From the River To River website:

“…organized by New Amsterdam Presents in association with Kaufman Music Center, Ecstatic Summer 2013 features two full sets of newly commissioned, collaboratively-based music; one for brass and the other for percussion. Part concert and part “happening,” the two sets will be completely acoustic, site-specific events, designed specifically to fill the stunning waterfront plaza of Brookfield Place with over a dozen musicians involved in each set. Composers include Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Dave Douglas, Susie Ibarra, Seth Olinsky (Akron/Family).”
