Other Minds

The 11th Other Minds Music Festival has been announced and will take place in San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts from February 24-26, 2005.

"The 11th Other Minds Music Festival (OM11) draws together cutting-edge composers and illustrious guest performers from around the world for premiere performances, artist talks, and master classes, and offers a rare opportunity to hear important new works—including four world premieres—by nine of today’s most innovative composers, all of whom will attend in person. The 2005 festival also includes a centennial tribute to a gifted but forgotten American composer, Marc Blitzstein, known for his legendary 1937 musical The Cradle Will Rock. In addition, OM11 presents a 60th-birthday salute to composer and Other Minds founding artistic director Charles Amirkhanian, featuring a San Francisco premiere."

I will probably not be going due to be on the east coast of Sweden and needing to attend my site of payed activity during this time (not to mention family) but if I was in the area it is cheap to attend ($40 a day). The program is here
