Thanks/congrats to everyone at PFNM 2016!
We had a wonderful Pittsburgh Festival of New Music in May 2016—world-class performances by Tony Arnold, Dieter Hennings, Allen Otte, great appearances by local artists, the flashmob of Stravinsky's Firebird, and so much more!
And now we can't wait to release plans for the PFNM 2018...
Stravinsky at the park
We gathered one by one at Market Square to build up to the tutti at the end of Stravinsky's Firebird. It was a beautiful day for the outdoor kick-off event of the Pittsburgh Festival of New Music!
(A short documentary with the full piece is in preparation and will be released soon on our YouTube channel. Stay tuned!)
Cineshape kicked off the Festival on May 4 at the Warhol
The JACK Quartet, flutist Lindsey Goodman, percussionist Scott Christian, and Amy Williams at the piano feature in the Pittsburgh stop of their tour premiere of Cineshape, the multimedia film+music collage by Amy Williams and Aaron Henderson.
Cineshape was also the final event of Music on the Edge's 2015-16 Season, and was presented by Music on the Edge, the Andy Warhol Museum, and the University of Pittsburgh's Year of the Humanities.

Support Alia Musica's coming 2016–17 Season! Guest recitals by Frederic Rzewski and Jordan Dodson, a residency with Chicago-based vocal quartet Quince, and Berio's Laborintus II
Alia Musica receives a National Endowment for the Arts grant to produce the Pittsburgh Festival of New Music in May 2016
Plans are on! We'll have a PFNM in 2016, two years after the succesful launch of the festival in 2014! Great happenings are to be confirmed—The Great Learning, a flashmob with Stravinsky's music, the premiere by Ken Ueno, and a new Soundpike concert.
Stay tuned! For now here is a press release of the NEA award.
Great success on the Pittsburgh premiere of Ken Ueno's vocal concerto on November 12! Recordings and videos coming soon.
Alia Musica was awarded one three 2015 residency grants from [The Pittsburgh Foundation] and The Heinz Endowments for a year-long collaboration with world-renowned California composer, vocalist, and improvisor Ken Ueno.
The collaboration includes a new commission from Ken (Alia Musica joins the list of cutting-edge artists who have commissioned Ken!), and the Pittsburgh premiere of his ground-breaking concerto for throat-singing and orchestra, On a Sufficient Condition for the Existence of Most Specific Hypothesis. A great follow-up to the list of epic new music events we have brought to town in the last couple years (Inuksuit, The People United by Rzewski himself, Berio's Linea, the roving opera Perfect Lives...)
