In early September, PNME was invited to a residency with the University of Texas at Austin! We spent close to a week with the students in composer readings and masterclasses, and even put on a full-scale PNME show with works by Russell Pinkston, Andy Akiho, and Kevin Puts! We had a blast hanging out with UT's incredible artists and even had some time to check out authentic Texan barbecue! Nathalie in particular was thrilled to experience Texan BBQ for the first time!
A special thank you to Russell Pinkston for setting up this wonderful residency for us! It was a joy to give both the world premiere and Texan premiere of your "Off Leash"!

Our dearest congratulations to newlyweds, PNME cellist Norbert Lewandowski and Courtenay Burley Lewandowski, who wed on a magical, blustery day at TERO Estates Vineyards in Walla Walla, WA. Current PNME team as well as former PNME team where there to share in the merriment! We were even treated to a post-ceremony concert by former PNME pianist, Conor Hanick, and the violinist in our recording of Kevin Puts' "Einstein on Mercer Street", Steve Miahky. The air was fresh, the wine delicious🍷, and their love unforgettable! Join us in congratulating this beautiful couple!! 💜
The PNME team will be at it again in the beginning of October - but this time bringing some 💚 lime green love 💚 to Susquehanna University!! The performance, including works by Kevin Puts and Andy Akiho, will be on October 10th - 7:30pm in the Stretansky Concert Hall on campus!
