Under the direction of Artistic Director Marta Ptaszynska, Contempo introduces audiences to the bold visions of today’s most innovative composers. Its four-concert season presents an instrumental theater concert, music of women composers, the US premiere of a work for 100 percussionists, and the Tomorrow’s Music Today concert, featuring works written by UChicago doctoral candidates in composition.
