Additionally, five guest composers were selected through collaboration with New York City new music organizations Vox Novus and Composers Concordance (Melissa Grey, Jessica Meyer, David Morneau, Gene Pritsker, and Robert Voisey).
Featured performers include Lori Ardovino (clarinet), Adam Bowles (piano), Sarah Nordlund Dennis (violin), Timothy Feeney (percussion), Michael Fernandez (viola), Kathryn Fouse (piano), Denise Gainey (clarinet), Alan Goldspiel (guitar), Craig Hultgren (cello), Jacob Mason (piano), Laurie Middaugh (piano), Seth Noble (percussion), Anthony Pattin (piano), Wendy Richman (viola), Christopher Steele (piano), Hillary Tidman (flute), Laura Usiskin (cello), Pei-Ju Wu (violin), and Jim Zingara (trumpet).
