The Tanglewood Music Center

Festival of Contemporary Music

The Festival of Contemporary Music (FCM) is one of the world's premier showcases for works from the current musical landscape and landmark pieces from the new music vanguard of the 20th century. FCM affords Tanglewood Music Center Fellows the opportunity to explore unfamiliar repertoire and experience the value of direct collaboration with living composers.

The 2022 FCM was under the direction of Ellen Highstein in her final year as TMC Director, assisted by co-curators Tony Arnold, Stephen Drury, George Lewis, and Astrid Schween.
