After a year of virtual performances, the TCU School of Music is thrilled to offer live, in-person performances and to partner with the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. We are eager to connect with our community and to share this diverse program of contemporary music presented by our School of Music faculty and students. Join us for a fantastic afternoon of music, community, and celebration!
About the New Music Ensemble
The New Music Ensemble program at TCU focuses on performing repertoire that ranges from early 20th-century classic works to newly-written music by contemporary composers.
In essence, NME program is a chamber music program with groups of various sizes and instrumentation; however, it is open only to the most advanced TCU music students, and it has very active faculty participation, too. Our mission is to bring diverse programs of contemporary music to our community.
Starting in 2021, we partnered with the Modern Arts Museum in Fort Worth, and our concerts take place in their wonderful auditorium, next to Café Modern.
The NME program is coordinated by Dr. Misha Galaganov.
