NNM is an extraordinary organization, and I have been a devoted follower for many, mnay years! Under the dynmamic leadership of it's founders, NNM has been premiering cutting edge work of Pultizer Prize winning composers, and young artists. Linda Reichert's extraordinary vision has been an inspiration to new music lovers and producers, and has additionally, influenced sister arts as well, as I can personally attest. Linda brought me, a visual artist, together with international composer Andrea Clearfield for NNM's program "MIX"; our resulting collaborative work "Lungta-The Windhorse", for which we traveled to the high Himalayas, has generated both long-standing audience enthusiasm and a long list of future creative works for both of us. What a fabulous organization--NNM is a regional and national treasure!
