WE’RE A DIVERSE COMMUNITY OF COMPOSERS, PERFORMERS & AUDIENCES IN A THRIVING MUSIC SCENE.
As a resource of the American Composers Forum, NewMusicMN celebrates the state where we were founded and are headquartered. NewMusicMN is an aggregated event calendar, a weekly e-newsletter, and Facebook page for MN and the surrounding region.
This crowdsourced calendar posts events with music created in recent decades and music by living composers and improvisers, including workshops and performances (formal and informal). We want to post your solo and ensemble performances, film score, sound design, installations, dance & theater productions. If it includes original music, please share it with us. Composition is happening everywhere around us, and we enjoy showcasing the breadth and depth of our region’s musical creativity!
The NewMusicMN website also shares news about regional compsoers and posts links to local & regional grants, commissions, and contests.
The American Composers Forum (ACF) enriches lives by nurturing the creative spirit of composers and communities. Through commissions, grants, mentorships, performances, publications, residencies, and hosted gatherings, we provide innovative opportunities for composers and their music to flourish, and we link communities and composers through creation, connection, and engagement. ACF facilitates an ecosystem that reflects the diversity of our world, and we partner with a variety of creative musicians and organizations to develop the next generation of new music creators, performers, and advocates.
