San Diego New Music joins November’s statewide California Festival: A Celebration of New Music with a concert at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library onThursday, November 9. The festival celebrates the tremendous stylistic diversity and inventiveness of California composers. All the composers featured on the program are living and creating new music in the state today. For the November 9 concert, San Diego New Music has co-commissioned a new work from Texu Kim, who recently relocated to San Diego and was also featured on the 2023 edition of the soundON Festival. Other works include inventive ensemble pieces by Berkeley-based composer Ken Ueno and Los Angeles–based composer Nicholas Deyoe. SDNM’s own Christopher Adler presents a new cross-cultural composition for Thai mouth organ and Korean zither, which premiered earlier in 2023. Solo works by Vera Ivanova (Orange County) and Francisco Eme (San Diego) round out this program.
