Living American Composers: New Music from Bowling Green

Sundays at 2:00 p.m. beginning August 26, 2018, on WXXI-FM 91.5 and WXXY-FM 90.3

For nearly four decades, hundreds of composers, performers, and lovers of contemporary music have descended annually on a small college town in Northwest Ohio for a singular event: the New Music Festival at Bowling Green State University (BGSU). Home to the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music, BGSU also sponsors a multi-venue concert series called Music at the Forefront, which shines a spotlight on new and exciting young performers.
