+++++++++++++

Neo Camerata performs new classical music by award winning composer Mark Landson which combines the emotion, beauty and technique of classical music with the harmonic and rhythmic language from the world of rock, and performs it with virtuoso musicians. Critics have called it a “genre-busting,” “technically impressive,” “emotionally stirring” and “totally cool and amazing” experience.

Formed in 2003, the group has performed at the Cannes Film Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and on the bill with orchestras and pop singers.

After a seven year hiatus, the group was re-formed by Landson and went on a 32 city tour in 2015 with the rock band Say Anything, also playing 25 classical concerts along the way.

Neo Camerata again hits the road in 2017, partnering with Landson’s organization “Open Classical” and also “Music In Familiar Spaces” to bring the music and experience to multiple cities across the US.

Mark Landson, composer/viola/violin
Mark Landson has been recognized as “One of the Top 100 Creatives in Dallas” and an “Arts Entrepreneur Forward Thinker” in his work as Director of Open Classical. As composer, his new classical compositions have been praised as “Stravinsky at his most lyrical”, and “a unique combination of pop inspiration and classical craft”.

Landson’s compositions take the audience on a journey of emotions, melding the techniques of classical composition with infectious melodies, contemporary pop harmonic language and rhythmic drive.

Recent commissioned works include the operetta “Goldilocks” (Dec 2015), ballet “Le Mozart Noir” (Feb 2016), and cello sonata (April 2017). In December, 2016, his string quartet “Travels” took first place at the “The Ear” in New York, a competition in New York where the audience is asked which piece they want to hear again.
