The Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale California hosts Fifteen Minutes of Fame with pianist Mark Robson on Sunday April 6 at 2pm. This set of 15 one-minute works by 15 different composers will be part of their full length solo recitals on the Brand Library Music Series.

Fifteen Minutes of Fame gives a variety of new music by living composers to audiences hungry to hear what is being created in today's music scene.

"...the 15 Minutes of Fame project of Vox Novus is a godsend. It organizes competitions whereby ensembles commission worldwide calls for submissions of approximately one-minute pieces, and then select their 15 favorites for premieres. The players, themselves emerging and without the funds for a traditional commission fee, get original works to present, while the likewise emerging composers get a chance for exposure and a premiere..." - Seth Gilman, NY Music Culture Examiner
