On June 14, cellist Jeffrey Zeigler joined artists of the annual Next Festival of Emerging Artists at Le Poisson Rouge to perform music of Lisa Bielawa, Paola Prestini and Peter Askim.

Founded by Artistic Director Peter Askim, the festival features a guest artist who performs alongside the Institute musicians.

This evening's performance is the culmination of that program, featuring Zeigler – formerly of Kronos Quartet – and the ensemble in a performance of music by Pierre Jalbert, Lisa Bielawa, Peter-Anthony Togni, Paola Prestini and Peter Askim. Askim conducts.
