New York Festival of Song
In 1988, Manhattan-based pianists Michael Barrett and Steven Blier presented the very first concert season of New York Festival of Song, a series of intimate, original ensemble song programs consisting almost exclusively of rarely-heard songs of all kinds, “from Debussy to doo-wop, lieder to Latin jazz, Josquin to just-written.” Each show was unified by a theme, constructed with a dramatic arc, and cast with superb vocal artists whose committed performances brought the songs to vivid life, with the directors as accompanists and animated narrators. This same dynamic model for seeking out unusual songs and sharing them audiences continues to shape NYFOS’s concerts today, in ways that continue to delight and surprise listeners. NYFOS’s motto since that first season has been “No song is safe from us!” Newsday has called NYFOS “the most reliably excellent musical organization in New York.” Steven Blier, Artistic Director of NYFOS, lives on our block as does Jeff Miller, a member of the NYFOS Board.
