About New Music Gathering
New Music Gathering is an annual conference dedicated to the performance, production, promotion, support and creation of new concert music. With concerts, lecture/recitals, roundtable discussions, talks, and everything from composer-performer “speed dating,” to live action role playing games, NMG aims to be both a conference in the traditional sense but also quite literally a collective place for things to grow, improve, solidify, and above all get personal.
New Music Gathering is volunteer-organized by five working musicians – Lainie Fefferman, Daniel Felsenfeld, Mary Kouyoumdjian, Jascha Narveson, and Angélica Negrón. Its focus is on meeting the needs and desires of the community in ways that are increasingly direct and diverse.
“A reunion for friends who had never met each other.” ~ Rob Deemer (New Music Box, 2015)
