MCCE is excited to announce our new interim Executive Director for the 2016-17 season - composer and bassist Andrew Rosciszewski!
Andrew Rosciszewski, composer and bassist, is known for his genre-bending compositions that fuse art music with rock in a colorful, eclectic style that reflects his passion and diversity of a wide musical palette. Influenced by composers such as Shostakovich, Bartók and Górecki, Andrew is intrigued and inspired by the folk music of his Polish heritage.
A recipient of the New Music USA Met Life Creative Connections grant as well as several ASCAPLus awards, Andrew was also MCCE's composer in residence for their 2011-2012 season. When he is not composing for or performing with MCCE, he can be found in the back of the venue recording their concerts.
Andrew is an award winning member of ASCAP and holds a BA from New Jersey City University where he studied composition with Dr. Stelio Dubbiosi and double bass with Lou Kosma (MET Opera Orchestra). Apart from these duties, he is also a string teacher (grades 4-8) with the New Brunswick School District. Andrew is looking forward to the challenge of helming MCCE this year and has an exciting and rewarding season of music planned.
