Friday, October 18, 2019

All concerts begin at 7:30 PM.


San Diego New Music presents a program curated by percussionist Fiona Digney with Alex Greenbaum, cello


Percussionist Fiona Digney guides us on an exploration of the edges of time, where beginnings and endings meet, and cycles are created. From Peter Garland’s meditative Moon Viewing Music to Golijov’s end-of-life lament Mariel, we are encouraged to re-imagine the edges of sound, time, life, and consciousness.

San Diego New Music is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the public performance of notated music of the highest integrity and artistic caliber from the 20th and 21st centuries. We seek to advance the art form by promoting music composed with conceptual rigor, passionate energy and singular artistic vision. SDNM enriches the artistic culture of San Diego through the presentation of an annual concert series and the soundON Festival of Modern Music, and through fostering its resident performing ensemble, NOISE.


In 1994, the only place in San Diego where you could hear an entire concert of 20th-century music was on a college campus. San Diego New Music pitched the idea of a concert series devoted to modern music and 20th-century classics at the Athenaeum. The concerts of modern music perfectly complement the exhibitions of modern art held in the Athenaeum’s galleries. In 1996, San Diego New Music presented its first season. The series was called "Noise at the Library," and the ensemble would later adopt the name, as well.


San Diego New Music and the Athenaeum have been happily co-presenting concerts of new music ever since.
