2017 Festival of Contemporary Music

FMC Percussion Ensemble

The TMC's annual Festival of Contemporary Music, performed almost entirely by Fellows of the Music Center, is world renowned, covered by the national and international press and attended by both major figures in the new music community and devoted audience members.
It represents an opportunity for performance fellows to work closely with some of the leading composers of our time, often in world and U.S. premiere performances; and to create performances of an excellence and understanding that can inspire and enlighten.

The 2017 FCM has been curated by three performer-alumni of the TMC, all of whom have gone on to make new music central to their performing lives: cellist Kathryn Bates, pianist Jacob Greenberg, and violist Nadia Sirota. They've created programs filled with exciting works of both their young composer colleagues and established masters. The culminating orchestra concert will, in addition, be book-ended by masterworks by Ligeti and Dutilleux.
