NMC’s 58th Season: Fall 2016 – Spring 2017

We are back from summer break and excited to announce our 58th season lineup. NMC followers may recognize some of these names from previous NMC presentations, like Tomas Fujiwara (from Thumbscrew), and Ikue Mori (of Mephista). There will also be plenty of new artists to discover as well, such as Sylvaine Hélary from France and NYC-based sound-art trumpeter Nate Wooley.

New Music Circle aims to match each concert with a space where the music will communicate best, working in some of our favorite St. Louis venues and collaborating with other co-presenters once again. Workshops, special engagements and pop-up events will be announced as our opening concert nears, so please continue to check our website, sign up on our email list and follow our social media outlets (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook: @newmusiccircle ) for regular updates.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you at the gig!
