To support the 25th Anniversary Memorial Concert dedicated to the memory of The Ellis L. Phillips Foundation’s former President, Ellis L. (Larry) Phillips.

The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) is widely recognized as the leading orchestra in the United States dedicated exclusively to performing new music, and its signature record label, BMOP/sound, is the nation’s foremost label launched by an orchestra and solely devoted to new music recordings. Founded in 1996, BMOP’s mission is to illuminate the connections that exist naturally between contemporary music and contemporary society by reuniting composers and audiences in a shared concert experience.  The concert, scheduled for 2021 will feature new organ music and will be held as a fitting tribute to the service of Larry Phillips to the organization.
