ABOUT BNMF: During our planning for the 2016-2017 season, members of Juventas' staff and board realized that there are over 30 new music organizations in the Boston area that all create and produce excellent works. We decided there was no better way to unite and celebrate new music than to join these fantastic groups together in a full-fledged Boston New Music Festival. Still in the planning stages, BNMF will take place in the fall of 2017, and will include performances by numerous ensembles, an operatic centerpiece, family events, and more.

PRE-CONCERT EVENT: You can get in on the "ground floor" of the Boston New Music Festival at our Launchpad fundraising event. Enjoy hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, chances to meet and mingle with Artistic Director Lidiya Yankovskaya, composers from the evening's programs, and other new music fans. While you're there, enter to win a fabulous prize package, the proceeds for which will support the Boston New Music Festival Initiative! Tickets are sold separately, and are available at Juventas online store:
