Quote from Leslie Bassett
"Performers who are deeply involved with their art and have discovered the excitement of new works are the hopes of music for the future. Music cannot rely solely on the great works of the past, any more than can any other art or endeavor. New works, new efforts growing from a culture, can bring heightened meaning, unexpected insights, new beauty. Such works must be heard, beautifully performed, become known, loved and cherished. Brave New Works is an ensemble committed to such a goal."
