Welcome to Five College New Music Festival 2022, the seventh celebration of contemporary music as performed by faculty of the Five Colleges. The festival weekend will feature four programs of new and recent compositions by twenty-three composers. The diversity of the music and creators represents a range of contemporary music being created in our region, the U.S., and around the world. This music speaks not only to the present but to a living history working to reclaim neglected figures and currents from the classical tradition. Thirty-eight performers from the Five Colleges will bring this music to life. We invite you to join us to hear the music of our transformative time.
