Great artists give free concerts at New England Conservatory—simply because they teach here.

Hub New Music makes its Jordan Hall debut with a portrait concert of longtime friend and colleague Kati Agócs, a member of New England Conservatory's composition faculty. The program includes the world premiere of Hyacinth Curl.

Called "powerful" by Time Out New York, Kati's music is hailed for merging sensuous allure with lapidary rigor, and is performed by leading musicians worldwide. The New York Times has characterized her chamber music as “striking,” her orchestral music as “filled with attractive ideas,” and her vocal music as possessing “an almost Nineteenth-century naturalness.” Kati Agócs received the prestigious Arts and Letters Award in Music from The American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2014, and is also a recent Guggenheim Fellow. She serves on the composition faculty at the New England Conservatory in Boston.

About Hub New Music

"elegant and exacting" - The Boston Globe (Steve Smith)

Hub New Music is a collective of artists dedicated to the latest generation of contemporary compositions. Our name is inspired by our hometown of Boston, and the notion that a Hub is a center of innovation and creative thought. Striving to establish the music of today as an integral part of culture, the vast majority of Hub’s repertoire is written after 2000 with a special focus on the music of up and coming composers. With this repertoire, we seek to reach audiences through methods that best speak to the new millennium. In doing so, Hub transforms concerts into social experiences, merges art with technology, and leads educationally driven programs focused on building community through contemporary music.
