Jason Kush, a saxophonist and music educator in Pittsburgh, PA, launched the Three Rivers New Music Consortium in June 2013 with the goal of uniting musicians, arts enthusiasts, and musical composers in a common quest for newly composed music. The consortium seeks to see beyond boundaried genres, promoting the creation of works which blur these lines of definition. Additionally, this organization brings together performers and composers for the purpose of collaboration in the creation of deeply meaningful, sincere music.
