Wild Shore New Music presents adventurous new chamber music in south-central Alaska and explores how art engages the natural world in all its beauty and danger. Humans have always needed to use and understand the natural world in order to survive. Wild Shore stages this struggle, and invites audiences to reflect on it, through performances of instrumental music. Wild Shore fosters collaborations between living composers, the nation's finest classically-trained musicians, and the extraordinarily creative artists and residents of Alaska.
Wild Shore Festival for New Music is a non-profit organization that is fiscally sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), which supports artists who want to realize specific projects. NYFA’s mission is to empower artists at critical moments in their creative lives. Through NYFA, all contributions to Wild Shore Festival for New Music are tax-deductible within the fullest extent of the law. For additional information on NYFA, please click here.
