We are raising $3000 for our
2022 Twin Cities New Music Festival!

Each donation up to $3000 will be matched TWICE by a generous board member. Turn your $25 donation into $75 of support for new music! 

Twin Cities New Music Festival programming is purposeful—artistically excellent and inclusive, balancing local musicians with composers and performers from all over the world, with a particular focus on experimental music by living composers. The Twin Cities New Music Festival has challenged the concert music narrative by presenting works with performative components that redefine the concert experience, while repeatedly demonstrating the capacity to take on challenging repertoire that is rarely performed anywhere in the world. 

The 4th installment of the Twin Cities New Music Festival features: 

  • Fonema Consort
  • Pianist Noriko Kawaii
  • Glasgow composer James Dillon
  • The composers of 113
  • Numerous local musicians
  • Selected composers from our annual Call For Scores
  • And selected ensembles from our newly-introduced Call for Experimental Minnesota Musical Acts

Please support this ambitious festival with a donation today!

113, a Twin Cities-based collection of composers and performers of new music, curates concerts, seminars, and master classes throughout the United States and Europe.

Please consider giving to support experimental new music in the Twin Cities.  All funds go directly to support dedicated musicians, educational outreach, and the substantial cost of producing high-quality events.

Through ambitious programming, community building, educational outreach, and emphasis on extensive interaction between composers and performers that greatly exceeds the industry standard, 113 provides a platform for musicians pursuing bold, personalized artistic visions, and helps them to transmit those visions as directly and honestly as possible to a receptive audience, unfettered by university politics, market pressures, or established conventions.

Since its inception in 2012, 113 has presented over sixty world premieres and worked with composers and performers such as Richard Barrett, Anthony Cheung, Chaya Czernowin, James Dillon, Julio Estrada, Brian Ferneyhough, Michael Pisaro, Collect/Project, Duo Gelland, Ensemble Dal Niente, Fonema Consort, The Gregorian Singers, Marcelo Rilla, Bill Solomon, Strains New Music Ensemble, Milana Zaric and dozens of local musicians of the highest caliber.

Studio 113 also continues to create educational opportunities for Minneapolis Public School students through our summer instrument-building and electronic music course led by Benjamin Klein and a Minneapolis Public Schools residency by Alyssa Anderson, Justin Anthony Spenner, and the composers of 113, teaching contemporary art music, vocal performance, and music composition to choir students at Folwell School.
