The Boston New Music Festival showcases Boston's vibrant contemporary music scene, founded and facilitated biennially by Juventas New Music Ensemble. In light of COVID-19, it is re-envisioning itself in a new virtual format. The 2020 Virtual Boston New Music Festival (vBNMF) will run through November 15, 2020, with many different ensembles performing. This year's virtual format will allow a global audience to immerse themselves in the city's music scene for the first time. Since people can't be together physically, vBNMF will offer a much needed opportunity for Boston’s local ensembles to come together and support one another during this challenging time, creating a stronger community of music making that will extend far beyond the end of the current crisis.
To get a sneak preview of what to expect tomorrow night, watch Minjin Chung performing Mari Kotskyy’s piano trio “Reminiscence” with the Juventas New Music Ensemble:
