The Boston Modern Orchestra Project has had an outstanding reputation amongst Boston’s most innovative and performing arts organizations for attracting multi-generational audiences and providing thematic, diversified programming, and a national reputation for performing and recording new orchestral music at the highest level.
Founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Gil Rose, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project strives to illuminate the connections that exist between both contemporary music and society by reuniting composers and audiences in a shared concert experience. The 2007-2008 BMOP season offers no fewer than 10 world premieres. In Spring 2008, BMOP launches a new curatorial collaboration with the 10th annual MATA Festival (Music at the Anthology, Inc.), the leading global catalyst for emerging composers and contemporary music co-founded by Philip Glass. In addition, BMOP launches its signature recording label BMOP Sound with the 2008 release of five new albums by composers Charles Fussell, Michael Gandolfi, John Harbison, Lee Hyla, and Gunther Schuller....
