In support of the musical legacy of our time

Dear Friend of New Music Works,

We are grateful that you, our audience, have supported the unique musical experience that is New Music Works for 35 years. Your open ears have welcomed the work of over 400 living composers! NMW gathers the best musicians in the Bay Area to perform the finest contemporary chamber music. Concert attendance itself just cannot support work of this quality and variety.

Please donate to NMW today. Realize that we bring big city cultural values to our area, and promote the innovation that makes us proud to live here.

  • NMW nurtures local composers: works by Christopher Pratorius and Michael McGushin were premiered this season.
  • NMW set a new standard for family Halloween entertainment: Halloweenworld melded new music with silent movies, line-dancing, and costume contest.
  • NMW features music by the composers of our time: John Zorn (New York), Frederic Rzewski (Belgium), Hyo-shin Na (San Francisco), and Daniel Wolf (Frankfurt).
  • Our 2014-15 season featured Grammy nominee percussionist, William Winant, and pianist Sarah Cahill.

Your contribution can make a lasting impact on the music of the 21st century. Join us as we create the musical legacy of our time.
