Classical Concert: The Festival of New American Music
November 12, 2017
The annual Festival of New American Music showcases talented musicians performing new works by contemporary American composers. This year, the festival brings to the Crocker transdisciplinary artist and percussionist Andrew Blanton. Blanton combines classical percussion, new media art, and creative coding to offer a unique sonic and visual experience. The Festival of New American Music, a project of the School of Music at Sacramento State, is celebrating its 40th year of providing Sacramento audiences with the finest American contemporary music. You can check out all festival events at csus.edu/music/fenam. Space is limited, and advance registration is recommended.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented it’s Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts that draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of works by American contemporary artists in the Crocker's permanent collection to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
