Percussionist Steven Schick, the International Contemporary Ensemble, New Music Detroit, and Michigan’s Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble have been announced as the headlining performers for the third annual New Music Gathering, this year slated for May 11–13, 2017, on the campus of Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
Co-founded by musicians Lainie Fefferman, Daniel Felsenfeld, Mary Kouyoumdjian, Matt Marks, and Jascha Narveson, this practitioner-led conference has become a much-praised space for new music colleagues from across the country to meet face-to-face and discuss challenging issues and exciting trends.
So as we prepare for year three the usual challenges present themselves, just in greater numbers.Also we have, because of some gracious funding help, significantly lowered the price to welcome more people to NMG.” Registration is now open at the rate of /advanced full-3-day conference pass ( at the door); /day pass.Complimentary passes are available to BGSU students, staff, faculty, and alumni.Previously held in San Francisco and Baltimore, the Bowling Green location takes the festival into the country’s heartland.
Felsenfeld explains that the location was chosen for two reasons.“The first was the school’s legendary commitment to new music,” he acknowledged.“And the other the fact that we’ve been on both coasts and need to look elsewhere—and so much is happening either at the college or in neighboring cities that it seemed like an ideal hub for so much excellent music making.One of the principal missions of New Music Gathering is to never be in the same place twice, which means we get to experience more of the musical landscape.” Part of that experience means getting out of urban hubs.
