Now in its 48th year, the Festival of New Music spans three days and is a wonderful opportunity for composers and musicians to come together and perform new works. The festival is comprised of four concerts featuring works by composers from across the country. In addition, a guest composer is featured each year and presents workshops for festival attendees.
