PROJECT ENCORE, featuring acclaimed saxophonist Timothy McAllister and the celebrated pianist Liz Ames, was born from the idea that concert curation often relies too much on tradition and time-honored chestnuts while ignoring fresh, innovative and diverse voices. Alongside the duo’s conscious efforts to weave a wide array of influences into their playing, whether a uniquely American classical sound, concepts from broader wind pedagogy, or popular idioms, they believe it is increasingly crucial to foster partnerships with living composers across a broad spectrum of styles and backgrounds. Their intention is for these works to find a home as true ‘encores’ following larger compositions, concert openers, or, simply, the perfect introductions to these composers themselves as a means to round out any recital programming. 

Vaccinations and boosters (or valid medical or religious exemptions) required. Masks optional (but welcome!) except under certain conditions.
