Background on the Performances

The WNMF website has a ton of information about the performances, the festival, and the artists. Every performance except for Glacial Time features a pre-concert chat, a post-concert Q&A, and a reception, all taking place on the Piano Nobile. You can also purchase a $5.00 WNMF official festival program with exclusive interviews, program notes, and more at the Centennial Concert Hall.

WNMF Mini-Concert Series

If you want to experience New Music over your lunch hour, there will be performances every day of the festival, at all different locations in the city! Performances range from new music groups to choirs to an experimental improvisation group. All performances start at noon.

You can check out the listings on the WNMF website.

Bonus WNMF Content

On January 27 at 12:30 pm, there will be a screening of the film Remember Siberia with a post-film panel featuring Maestro Daniel Raiskin, composer Peteris Vasks, and director Dzintra Geka at Cinematheque. Remember Siberia is an emotional, figurative and historical study of the memories of people deported to Siberia as children in 1941.

The vocal group Roomful of Teeth will present a workshop focusing on the groups’ founding concept, working structure, and techniques. Following the presentation, there will be a Q + A with the members of Roomful of Teeth and their artistic director, Brad Wells. Tickets are limited. The presentation will take place backstage at the Centennial Concert Hall on February 1 from 4:30-5:30 pm. You can purchase tickets online or through the Box Office. Tickets are $20 for individuals, $15 for students, and $10 group rate (minimum 5) with promo code TEETH.
