Our fall 2018 festival will feature The Orchestra Now, conducted by Jindong Cai, along with performances by other ensembles, large and small, and pre-concert lectures and panel discussions.  The festival will pay special attention to the new generation of composers and performers in China, drawing on materials from throughout the world including elements of theater and dance.
