Descended from a legendary musical family, Brazilian composer, pianist and singer Clarice Assad has been called "a veritable musical dynamo." Assad curates, hosts, and performs in a 75-minute program to include a world premiere of her own work alongside works by other Brazilian composers, showcasing the diverse musical styles of her country.

Now in its eighth season, the “invaluable contemporary-music series” (The New Yorker) NYFOS Next takes the longstanding NYFOS tradition of presenting new work, and puts it in the hands of the composers themselves. Each composer becomes a curator, building an hour-long program that features his/her own works and those of colleagues, students or influences.
