Boston New Music Initiative
The Boston New Music Initiative, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on establishing, maintaining, and developing an international network of contemporary music champions, performers, conductors, directors, and composers of music so as to foster collaborations, new music concerts, and commissions in the music industry. The organization's mission is to advance the careers of its members in the field of music by serving as a resource for networking, professional development, commissioning, collaboration, and programming.
In its first eleven concert seasons, BNMI has performed the works of over 200 living composers, including 49 world premieres and seven commissioned works. In an ongoing effort to recognize, perform, and create new repertoire for the concert hall and beyond, BNMI holds a commissioning competition, a young composers competition, and two international calls for scores each season, with the winning composers programmed on future BNMI seasons.
