Just as Barnes and Stokowski imported innovative art to the region, two chamber concerts of contemporary repertoire will serve as a laboratory for new music in Philadelphia. Featuring musicians from around the world and curated by new music presenter SoundLAB, the chamber concerts will include U.S. and Philadelphia premieres of works by living composers.
This concert is FREE and open to the public, but online RSVPs are encouraged.
