State of the art: boundary-pushing ensemble brings their brand of chamber music to Anchorage

Wild Shore New Music is a New York-based chamber music collective featuring Alaskan-raised musicians who focus on the relationship between art and our environment.

For their eighth season in Alaska, the band performs the music of star composer Joseph C. Phillips Jr., who brings a diverse background of musical influences to the table.

Wild Shore New Music is performing in Kenai, Homer and Anchorage this week. Their Anchorage schedule is Saturday, June 11 at 7:30 p.m. at UAA Recital Hall in the Fine Arts Pavilion and is free.

In this program we are joined by star composer of Wild Shore Phillips along with founders and musicians of the ensemble Katie Cox and Andie Tanning. We discuss what the band has been up to since arriving in Alaska, Phillips’ musical selections and what’s next.

REMARK: It is mentioned in the interview that Kenai and Homer’s performances are at 7:30 p.m., but they are at 7 p.m.
