Carnegie Hall has announced its 2021–22 concert season, sharing plans to reopen its landmark concert venue to the general public this October, and among the performers taking the esteemed hall's stages are a number of artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal, including Sō Percussion with Dawn Upshaw and Gilbert Kalish, Kronos Quartet, and Youssou N'Dour; and works by composers like Caroline Shaw, John Adams, Nico Muhly, Sarah Kirkland Snider, and Michael Gordon.

Sō Percussion performs Caroline Shaw's Narrow Sea with Dawn Upshaw and Gilbert Kalish in Zankel Hall on Saturday, December 11, 2021. The piece, which all of these artists perform on the premiere recording released on Nonesuch this past January, is five parts, each a new setting of a text from The Sacred Harp, the 19th-century collection of shape-note hymns.

Kronos Quartet returns to Zankel Hall on Saturday, April 23, 2022, to perform a piece instrumental to the group's founding, George Crumb's Black Angels, which can be heard on Kronos's 1990 Nonesuch album of the same name, and give the world premiere of a new work by Aleksandra Vrebalov co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall.

Additionally, Youssou N'Dour, who released five albums on Nonesuch, returns to Stern Auditorium on Friday, May 13. His Nonesuch catalog includes the 2010 I Am What I Love film soundtrack, Rokku Mi Rokka (Give and Take) (2007), the Grammy Award–winning Egypt (2004), and Nothing's in Vain (Coono du réér) (2002), and Joko (The Link) (2000).

Throughout the season, the New York Philharmonic performs works by several familiar composers: John Adams's Saxophone Concerto, of which Nonesuch released the first recording in 2014, is on the orchestra's January 6, 2022, program, featuring Branford Marsalis; Michael Gordon's Weather One, which Nonesuch released in 1999, will be performed on April 13; a Nico Muhly piece will be given its US premiere on April 27; and a Sarah Kirkland Snider piece will be given its world premiere on June 10.

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.
