News   Jason Robert Brown, Julia Murney, Andrew Lippa Heard in New Voices Concert, July 21 The New Voices Collective, the group devoted to presenting the songs of composers who are also known as musical directors and pit players, presents a July 21 concert, New Voices Summer Bash, in Manhattan.

The music of Jason Robert Brown, Sam Davis, Zina Goldrich, Stephen Hoffman, Andrew Lippa, Paul Loesel, Steve Marzullo and Georgia Stitt will be heard. This is the third concert by New Voices, curated by Joel Fram, himself a musical director and composer.

The performance is at 8 PM at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia, the intimate, 150-seat theatre in Symphony Space on the Upper West Side.

Performers in the concert are Kate Baldwin, Stephen Bogardus, Liz Callaway, George Dvorsky, Andrew Lippa, Rebecca Luker, Julia Murney and Daniel Reichard.

Audiences will "discover the performing side of several of the composers, who will make guest appearances throughout the evening." The show is presented acoustically, without microphones, and features a seven piece ensemble including Roger Butterley (guitar), Alison Gordon (viola), Ed Matthew (clarinet), Dick Sarpola (bass), Clay Ruede (cello), along with Marco Paguia and Joshua Rosenblum at the piano.

The evening is hosted by Danny Burstein. New Voices Collective is generally focused on composers who are unsung, or known composers who are testing new colors — cabaret songwriter David Friedman's art songs were shared in a previous concert, for example. Tickets are $25 ($22 for Symphony Space members). For information, call (212) 864-5400 or visit www.symphonyspace.org.

Symphony Space is located at 2537 Broadway at 95th Street.
