MAYA, a trio formed in the summer of 2005, offers the uniquely compelling and rhythmically driven combination of flute, harp and percussion, performing classical and new music, world music, and incorporating improvisations into its performances. The mission of MAYA is to perform, record, and commission music from a broad variety of composers with special emphasis toward nurturing relationships with emerging young composers, as well as expanding our repertoire with music from a variety of cultures. Born out of the chamber music tradition and founded by three prominent New York City concert musicians, the ensemble has embarked on a major commissioning program, stretching the boundaries of the classical chamber concert and creating appealing programs that weave together music of diverse traditions. MAYA’s performances reflect the artistic vision of its members who seek to create a repertoire which mirrors their expanding ideals of beauty in an increasingly connected world. MAYA makes its first North American tour in the 2008-9 season, and travels to South Africa in 2009.
This free concert is made possible through the generous support of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Fund for Creative Communities and The Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation.
