We’re celebrating 26 years! This year, the festival runs from January 2023 through April 2023 and includes the presentation of music by composers from around the world, many of whom are present to discuss their music for FIU students and audiences.
This year’s festival opens with celebrated composer Augusta Read Thomas, soprano Rachel Calloway, and the acclaimed Amernet String Quartet on January 18. The festival also features FIU’s contemporary chamber ensemble, FIU NODUS Ensemble, performing works by composer Marcos Balter, FIU alumni, and Cintas Foundation winners. Also featuring award-winning ensembles including Loadbang, Guitar-Percussion Duo, Dieter Hennings and Paul Vaillancourt, String Noise Duo, along with performances by our FIU faculty. The closing concert features the music of rising Swiss composer, Jessie Cox, who has roots in Trinidad and Tobago.
