Named 'the focal point of the post-classical scene' by Time Out NY, New Amsterdam is the centralized recording and performance hub of many of today's most celebrated emerging composers. Between New Amsterdam Records and New Amsterdam Presents, the composers who own New Amsterdam have created an artist first platform that recognizes and meets head-on the challenges of the 21st Century composer. The label focuses on composers whose work grows from the fertile ground between genres. The presents side is responsible for showcasing that work to new audiences through festival development, keen curation, partnerships with established orchestras and institutions, world premieres, semi-staged operas, record releases, special one-off shows, and chamber music series, all over the world.
The work done at New Amsterdam is helping to reshape centuries old institutions and attitudes about classical music. MHA provides creative and business consulting services for New Amsterdam.
