Today marks the beginning of the 16th annual California State University – Fullerton New Music Festival. The five day event is always an amazing opportunity to engage with a huge range of new music. This year’s festival is titled “To the ends of the earth: Music from Iceland to Australia and Beyond” and is dedicated to the memory of Pauline Oliveros, who was the founding composer in residence.
The 2017 festival features Annie Gosfield as Composer in Residence, but will also include music by Pamela Madsen, Pauline Oliveros, Sarah Belle Reid, Fay Wang, Kate Moore, Anna Clyne, Fjola Evans, Kate Neal, Vanessa Tomlinson, Paola Prestini, and Anna Thorvaldsdottir among others.
The festival runs from February 22 to February 26, with fantastic opportunities to hear a wide variety of ensembles and new works – including several world premieres.
