2018 soundOn Festival of Modern Music

Program TBA January 4-7, 2018

Workshops, Panel Discussions, Open Rehearsals, and Chamber Music Concerts


The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is pleased to announce the 11th Annual SoundON Festival of Modern Music, a four-day long series of concerts, performances, workshops, lectures, and art.


The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, together with San Diego New Music, presents the soundON Festival of Modern Music, annually in January. The soundON Festival of Modern Music brings together an international roster of composers and performers to present a four-day exploration of contemporary chamber music. Featuring performances by NOISE and Affiliated Artists, the multi-day festival format allows us to present unconventional works in an informal and enjoyable setting. We also reach out to young artists and audiences through an interactive workshop to build a new generation of new music supporters and artists. Now in its tenth year, the soundON Festival has become a fixture in the musical landscape of San Diego.
