New York's Music at the Anthology Appoints New Executive Director

Cellist Amanda Gookin is set to succeed Loren Loiacono on June 5, 2021

Founded by Philip Glass, Eleonor Sandresky, and Lisa Bielawa in 1996, Music at the Anthology (MATA) is an annual festival in New York City that supports emerging composers through commissions, performing, and funding new works.

Gookin is the founder of the contemporary chamber group, PUBLIQuartet, which was the quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2017-18.

She launched the Forward Music Project in 2015, which focuses on commissioning multimedia solo works for cello that emulates women empowerment. Amanda is also a faculty member at The New School of Performing Arts, where she designs and leads courses on social leadership, music history, and improvisation.

"I am honored to carry on MATA's legacy of tireless support for living composers and to join the rest of NYC in reimagining who is creating, who is performing, and who is listening," Gookin said.
