Progressive Chamber Music Festival, Day One

Event Navigation

NYC has long been an incubator for cross-genre pollination and experimentation in all corners of the music community, not least of all in the classical and jazz scenes. From the minimalism of Young, Reich and Glass in the 60s and 70s to the experimental genius of Zorn and the Knitting Factory scene of the 80s and 90s, there has been an unparalleled openness to break down walls and assumptions of what so-called art music can be and how it should be presented.

As these lines continue to blur and fade into one another, there continues a steady stream of artists and ensembles continuing to carry the torch and push the boundaries. The Progressive Chamber Music Festival, curated by the Sirius Quartet, features artists with unique identities and a shared desire to define chamber music on their own terms. These are chamber music ensembles of the 21st century, not defined by genre, nor limited by the distinction between concert and popular music, and blurring the lines between performer, composer, and improviser. This is progressive chamber music.
