The Society for New Music
Founded in 1971, the Society for New Music’s purpose is to act as a catalyst for the continued growth of the Central New York musical community by commissioning new works, featuring regional composers alongside guest composers, and by bringing new music to as broad an audience as possible through performances, broadcasts and cable TV. Giving 30-35 concerts per season, plus workshops and master classes, the Society is the only year-round new music organization in New York State outside of Manhattan, commissioning at least one new work each season and producing CDs of works by commissioned composers. The Society has received the ASCAP/Chamber Music American programming award four times between 1988 and 1997, and in 1994 Neva Pilgrim and the Society received ACA’s ‘Laurel Leaf’ Award.
