The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, together with San Diego New Music, presents the soundON Festival of Modern Music, annually in January.

The soundON Festival of Modern Music brings together an international roster of composers and performers to present a four-day exploration of contemporary chamber music. Featuring performances by NOISE and Affiliated Artists, the multi-day festival format allows us to present unconventional works in an informal and enjoyable setting.

We also reach out to young artists and audiences through an interactive workshop to build a new generation of new music supporters and artists. Now in its eleventh year, the soundON Festival has become a fixture in the musical landscape of San Diego.

The January 4 concert, "Exotic images from an inner journey," features works by composers Anne LeBaron, Toshio Hosokawa, Juan Pablo Contreras, Roger Reynolds, and Adam Greene.

The January 6 concert, " serenade even the unfortunate path," includes works by composers Liza Lim, Juan Pablo Contreras, Samuel Holloway, and Anne LeBaron, and features the world premiere of “Exotica,” commissioned by the Athenaeum and composed by Juan Campoverde Q.

The January 7 concert, "it matters not the destination...," features works by composers Antonio Gervasoni, Glenda Keam, Samuel Holloway, and Anne LeBaron.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
