Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival has been called “a full-throttle commitment to contemporary music” by Chamber Music America, and “a gift to New Yorkers thirsty for new sounds” by Time Out New York. Now in its 18th season, the Festival features established as well as emerging composers performed by leading new music ensembles and soloists. Under Victoria Bond’s direction, it supports creative music projects that serve the public through cultural diversity, education, outreach and innovation. Its mission is to supply living composers with performance opportunities and to provide the public with a way to experience contemporary music, bridging the gap between audience and composer. Onstage discussions between each composer and Bond help the listener understand the creators and their creations.
