Honeck-Moss Productions is proud to present “In The Works.”  This exciting new series was conceived as an opportunity for composers to try out new work in front of an audience and see how it plays in a supportive environment.  It is also an opportunity to create community among the composers and their performers.


In The Works will be presented monthly and feature three composers or composer teams, each presenting about 20 minutes of new material.  This month features the works of composers:  Joshua H. Cohen, Patricia Noonan & Sean Mahoney, and Pretty Sad White Girls.  Hosted by Andrew David Sotomayor.
