"Western classical music is developing in China at phenomenal speed, but just as exciting is the freshness that Chinese composers bring to the Western world. With the China Now Music Festival as our looking glass, we hope to bring people and cultures from East and West together through music.”
Presented by the US-China Music Institute of the Bard College Conservatory of Music in collaboration with the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, the Now Music Festival is dedicated to promoting an understanding and appreciation of classical music from contemporary China through an annual series of concerts and lectures. Each year the festival will explore a significant theme.
