New Amsterdam is a dream community of like-minded artists. I’m so proud to be associated with these visionaries.
— Missy Mazzoli

In 2019, NewAm will continue to create innovative ways to support its unique and visionary artists in four key areas:

1) Composers Lab

  • Composers Lab, NewAm’s education outreach program, has reached 40+ students from seven different countries and much of the United States in two years

  • The Lab is designed to take place fully online and is heavily underwritten so that composers and performers from all backgrounds can participate

  • In 2019, NewAm would like to expand its educational offerings to offer low/no cost tutelage on a wide array of topical subjects while building and fostering an international support network for emerging forward-thinking composers

2) Windmill Series

  • In 2018, NewAm launched The Windmill Series, a new digital-only set of releases in addition to its standard physical releases

  • This series will enable NewAm to DOUBLE its number of releases for 2019, in a time when many other labels are scaling back or closing altogether

  • As part of this venture, NewAm has also increased the resources it provides to artists, creating an in-house network of graphic designers, duplication companies, mixing engineers, and producers, all working at an exclusive 20% discount

3) Podcast

  • Over the last several years there has been a decrease in arts coverage by the media, which means there have been less opportunities for artists to share their stories and projects with the public

  • In 2019, NewAm plans to create a podcast series in which artists can talk in-depth about the stories behind their groundbreaking projects, giving more people the opportunity to learn about music that is moving and meaningful

4) Partnerships

  • In 2019, NewAm plans to expand the artists and community it serves by partnering with like-minded organizations around the world

  • This includes collaborations through presenting opportunities, securing subsidies to help students attend live performances at low or no cost, exploring additional educational opportunities, investigating ways to reduce current artist admin fees, and more
