Now in its fourth year, the Madison New Music Festival is helping music lovers in the city connect with the latest works by living composers. On Tuesday, August 6th, founder Zachary Green spoke with WORT’s Peter Haney about the festival, which runs August 9th, 10th, and 11th at various locations in central Madison. Highlights of the festival include a concert featuring works by composers connected to Wisconsin and a night of world premieres by such noted composers as Iceland’s Anna Thorvaldsdottir and the USA’s Andrew Norman. On Sunday, outdoor performances by Milwaukee-based Sista Strings, and the Madison New Music Ensemble will close out the festival on a convivial note.
