The mission of The Last Hundred (TLH) is to present high-quality art music written in the last one hundred years, acting as a liaison between modern and contemporary music. A central aspect of TLH is to create a professional ensemble that will feature some of the best musicians from our area as well as to invite guest performers, composers, and ensembles from other cities, states, and countries to perform, give lectures, and teach masterclasses in our community. TLH aims to create carefully selected and crafted events where audience members can experience music in a welcoming setting. In the spirit of promoting new works, the organization is committed to presenting and commissioning pieces by a wide range of composers working locally, nationally, and internationally. Ultimately, TLH wishes to create a culturally enriching environment where those who love classical music from the 20th century to our days, as well as those who are new to it, can explore this rich yet largely underrepresented repertoire.
Our goal is to create an organization devoted to promoting art music written during the last one hundred years through public performances, recordings, commissions, and conferences, as well as interviews and workshops.
