• Carnegie Hall's 2011-2012 Season: Michael Tilson Thomas on 'American Mavericks'

    As Artistic Director of American Mavericks, Michael Tilson Thomas offers a thrilling chance to experience the music of Charles Ives, Carl Ruggles, John Cage, John Adams, and other maverick composers in a series of concerts in March 2012, celebrating what he calls the "iconoclasts, moldbreakers, voyagers, pioneers of the American sound."

    Two performances by Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony form the cornerstones of American Mavericks, also featuring Emanuel Ax, Jessye Norman, Meredith Monk, and additional guest soloists. Other American Mavericks concerts feature Alarm Will Sound; Jennifer Koh, violin; Lisa Moore, piano; JACK Quartet; and So Percussion.
