Tanglewood Music Center’s annual Festival of Contemporary Music returns with an evening of new work by Leila Adu-Gilmore, Valerie Coleman and more.

Leila ADU-GILMORE United Underdog

Trevor WESTON A.N.S.
Valerie COLEMAN Portraits of Josephine
Nathalie JOACHIM The Race 1915
Tania LEÓN Indigena
Steven MACKEY Afterlife

Appearing on NPR and NBC, Leila Adu-Gilmore wrote about how she composed United Underdog amid the pandemic and the racial upheaval of the last several years. “I was moved to honor those people who work hard and struggle daily — together yet apart — for the common good of all of us,” she said on her website.

Nathalie Joachim’s The Race 1915, a piece for solo cello and electronics, echos the themes in United Underdog and was inspired by the works of 20th century African American artist Jacob Lawrence, who was known for his raw, challenging works.

The TMC Festival of Contemporary Music seeks to showcase up-and-coming, path-finding, and groundbreaking new composers whose works we believe will define the next evolution of classical music.

The Festival of Contemporary Music has been endowed in perpetuity by the generosity of Dr. Raymond H. and Mrs. Hannah H. Schneider, with additional support from the Fromm Music Foundation, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, the Amphion Foundation, Inc., and the Alice M. Ditson Fund at Columbia University.

The concert takes place in Ozawa Hall.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
