Who is W4?

West Fourth New Music is a collective of composers and performers dedicated to presenting new live concert music. Based out of New York City, W4 makes a priority of programming and producing new music events with an eye toward bringing diverse audiences together through innovative concert experiences. Co-directors Matt Frey, Tim Hansen, Molly Herron, and Ruben Naeff met while studying in the graduate program of NYU's Steinhardt School on West 4th Street in Manhattan. A mutual desire to produce their own work outside of the academic environment and to cultivate a broader audience for new music spurred the formation of W4.
