Festival Description

Formed in 2000, the Bangor New Music Festival is a contemporary classical music event. The festival presents the public with the opportunity to experience and learn about contemporary music, to commission and/or perform music by composers of various nationalities, and to enable the creation and performance of contemporary music by school pupils, students and the general public.

Over a period of four days the city of Bangor is full of striking artistic events, from the latest electro-acoustic music to contemporary music for piano, from a platform to young talanted musicians to a sound installation involving typewriters in a shopping centre. Most of the concerts are supported with educational workshops, where the public are most welcome to attend.
