Welcome to the 2024 Season!

Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival exists to celebrate, support and promote the work of living composers. Over the past 27 years, works by more than 250 composers have been played by some of the best performers in the country. Audiences have delighted to hear onstage conversations between host and founder Victoria Bond and the composers themselves. The 2024 season will mark the 28th year of the concert series, which Chamber Music America has called “a full-throttle commitment to contemporary music.”
