Kelly Strayhorn Theater, in collaboration with Alia Musica, presents Pittsburgh’s only festival celebrating new music and sound arts. From the traditional to the obscure, Hear/Now showcases the diversity and breadth of music today.
This two-day festival brings together the most noteworthy acts in the constantly evolving genre of new music—which is by nature unpredictable and experimental—in an intimate and up-close setting. Some of the best and most talented musicians from Pittsburgh and beyond perform the full spectrum of new music: from ensembles to soloists, electronic to instrumental. Experience the evolution of music and discover what’s out there in the world at the same time you are.
Hear/Now features Grammy Award-winning flutist Tim Munro, NYC-based contemporary composer DJ Spooky, acclaimed concert pianist Conor Hanick, experimental instrumentalist and vocalist Pamela Z alongside Alia Musica, Dave Eggar, ELCO,Host Skull, and many others.
