Mannes is moving next month from the Upper West Side to join New School in Greenwich Village. The aim is less Brahms, more contemporary.
To that end, the college has gone out hiring, among others:
Composers Lowell Liebermann, Missy Mazzoli (pictured) and David Little, violinist Miranda Cuckson, cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, pianist Jeremy Denk, Met concertmaster David Chan, Wall Street Journal theatre critic Terry Teachout and New York Philharmonic principal violist Cynthia Phelps.
It’s a whole new school.
