The Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble is one of the nation's oldest professional ensembles devoted to the music of our time. Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble's summer festival presents new music in a way you won't encounter anywhere else. If you think you don't like modern music, or if you're bored with the same-old, same-old concert routine, you'll find something here to entice and inspire you.
Performances include world premieres of new works and concentrates on music written in the last 10 years. Programs are designed to flow without breaks or pauses, so that even set changes are part of the concert experience. Spoken word, visual projections, lighting, and staging combine to create an integrated artistic and sensory experience found nowhere else in the world of contemporary art.
The Ear Shot Film Festival offers art films and documentaries related to the world of music. All performances take place at City Theatre, 13th and Bingham Streets, on Pittsburgh's South Side.
